Product Description

Step into Louis Theroux’s weird and wonderful world with The Louis Theroux Collection, a selection of the best from his critically acclaimed series’: Weird Weekends; When Louis Met and Louis And…

The award winning series, Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends, delves into the strange lives of some of America’s most colourful and controversial characters. No subject is overlooked as Louis meets members of the swastika worshipping white supremacists, middle aged swingers and politely asks porn stars "Is being a porn star really the dream job for any man?"

Louis’ unique and relaxed interview style offers the opportunity to get up close and personal with his interviewees, revealing fascinating eccentricities never seen before.

When Louis Met, introduces us to the private lives of disgraced MP Neil Hamilton and his wife Christine, while cigar smoking, tracksuit wearing and self-proclaimed legend Jimmy Saville talks about the death of his mother - his beloved Duchess, his charity work and cruise work. Louis also interviews the eccentric Chris Eubank, subtly unveiling his insecurities and his new life as a celebrity following his retirement for boxing.

In Louis And The Nazis he travels to California to get under the skin of the American neo-Nazi movement and investigates whether they are dangerous political extremists or simply delusional? In Louis And The Brothel, he takes a six-week sojourn at America's biggest legal brothel - "The Wild Horse Ranch" in Reno, Nevada, meeting the girls and the punters, including a well-hung cowboy and a disabled widow.

The Louis Theroux Collection is packed full of hilarious observations and quick-witted banter as Louis cleverly invites his interviewee’s to reveal their inner most quirks and traits, giving his audience a unique insight into the person behind the persona.

A must-have purchase for fans, this four-disc box set also includes never previously released excerpts of Louis’ reports on Michael Moore’s TV Nation featuring early encounters with the Ku Klux Clan, Millennialist religious leaders and evangelical policemen in the United States.

Synopsis

Collection compiling some of the most compelling episodes of Theroux's series Weird Weekends, When Louis Met... and Louis and.... Episodes include "Louis And The Nazis", "Louis and the Brothel", and revealing interviews with the likes of Neil and Christine Hamilton and Sir Jimmy Saville.

*Previously available on The Best of Weird Weekends vol 1 & 2 dvds.

For anyone hard of hearing, English subtitles are included

When I first saw this for preorder I was overjoyed because I thought the collection would be complete. Alas it's missing a lot of great Louis Theroux episodes- some available on past dvds (Hypnosis, UFOs) but many unreleased (Infomercials, Off off broadway, Demolition derby, Louis & Michael Jackson...). Louis writes in the insert that he wanted to include "When Louis met Max Clifford" in the set but Simon Cowell refused to give legal permission. Fans like myself then, can only hope they release a 2nd volume in the near future and Simon finds his sense of humour and relents. Needless to say however that what is part of this collection is well worth the investment.

The back of the dvd box states that due to copyright there have been some edits made to some episodes but I can happily say that whatever edits were made aren't noticible overall. There do seem to be a couple of abrupt cuts in one or two episodes but I have no idea if that wasn't how they were originally broadcast.

Lazily the only extras in this collection are a very young looking Louis' reports from Michael Moore's old TV Nation show. At the very least they could have ported the extras from the previous Weird weekend dvds to this set.

WLM Jimmy was filmed when Jimmy Saville was still a national treasure

Watching the programme now, knowing what we now know, is a very different experience to watching it back then!

Louis never fails to disappoint. If you like him, then you will absolutely love this. Worth buying for 'When Louis Met Jimmy' alone.

Although now about 10 years on from the production of this series, it is still entertaining, revealing and educational about those more weird activities and persons in life. Absorbing stuff from an original and engaging investigator who asks the questions we would dearly love to ask ourselves, in a very direct but benign way.

This collection is an excellent tribute to Louis Theroux's work over the past decade or so. His unique style of interviewing is great. He puts himself in the most awkward of scenarios and manages to make his audience laugh, think and react in ways only he could. A mixture of well-known 'celeb' interviews and 'weird culture' documentaries makes this collection a real insight into how people live. The DVD includes hours of interesting viewing for Theroux fans or for those people out there who are yet to experience this talented man at work. Recommended!

Louis theroux is a genius in my eyes and with this set you will agree,the way he works with people to bring out what they try to hide and the way he subtley exploits people with ridiculous,often offensive beliefs is wonderful. There are a few classics missing due to people not giving consent but this is still a flawless line up and a must have for louis fans,documentary fans and people with a love of wry humour

For Many years I have enjoyed watching the quick and amusing interviews/ situations, louis Theroux has created for the BBC and the public, this DVD is of no exception, therefore i highly advise anyone if they want a perfect night in, to watch and enjoy this DVD at night while sipping a brew with a few biscuits for ducking.
