We recently added Tabloid to the DBRL collection. The film was shown earlier this year at the Ragtag and currently has a rating of 92% from critics at Rotten Tomatoes. It is the latest film from Errol Morris, who has also directed other documentaries such as The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of War. Here’s a synopsis from our catalog:
In the late 1970s, Miss Wyoming Joyce McKinney became a tabloid staple when she kidnapped her former beau, a Mormon missionary, and tied him to a bed to ‘deprogram’ his religious beliefs-by having nonstop sex with him. Director Errol Morris follows the salacious adventures of this beauty queen with an IQ of 168 whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams led her across the globe, into jail and onto the front page.
