TABLOID (2010) [feature]

USA (MIFF 2011 , Documentaries)
Director: Errol Morris

Sex, crime, religion and flavoured lube - the interview subject of Errol Morris's new documentary possess a personality as outrageous as the story she tells.

Joyce McKinney was just an ordinary, everyday former beauty-queen-turned-bondage-call-girl. That is, until she kidnapped, bound and molested a Mormon gentleman.

Tabloid finds Errol Morris returning to the style of his First Person (MIFF 2001) interviews - though in kinkier form than usual - as with humour and candour, he draws out a jawdropping story of love and obsession from his most eccentric interview subject yet.

"Errol Morris' Tabloid is bonkers in all the best possible ways - a welcome return to perverse portraiture after a lengthy sojourn in the realm of more serious-minded subjects." - Variety
