Errol Morris‘s new documentary Tabloid is getting rave reviews across the board (I have yet to find one critic that didn’t love the movie to pieces). The film profiles Joyce McKinney, a former Miss Wyoming, who was convicted in absentia for the kidnap and indecent assault of a Mormon missionary in England during 1977:
Thirty years before the antics of Lindsay, Paris and Britney, Joyce McKinney made her mark as a peerless tabloid queen. In TABLOID, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Errol Morris (THE FOG OF WAR) follows the salacious adventures of this beauty queen with an IQ of 168, whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams leads her on a labyrinthine crusade for love. Down a surreal rabbit hole of kidnapping, masochistic Mormons, risque photography, magic underwear, celestial sex, jail time and a cloning laboratory in South Korea, Joyce’s fantastic exploits were constant headlines.
Tabloid is in select theaters now. To learn more about Errol’s life and career — including his brilliant “Interrotron” 2-way mirror interviewing technique — you can visit Wikipedia, and be sure to also check out Errol’s website at ErrolMorris.com.
