Product Description

Academy Award-winner Errol Morris TABLOID follows the much stranger-than-fiction adventures of Joyce McKinney, a former "beauty queen" whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams leads her across the globe and directly onto the front pages of the British tabloid newspapers. Joyce s crusade for love and personal vindication, as illustrated by Morris, takes her through a surreal world of gunpoint abduction, manacled Mormons, oddball accomplices, bondage modelling, magic underwear and dreams of celestial unions. This notorious affair is barking mad.

Equal parts love story, film noir, brainy B-movie and demented fairy tale, TABLOID is a delirious meditation on hysteria both public and personal from a filmmaker who continues to break down and blow open the documentary genre with his penetrating portraits of eccentric and profoundly complex characters. In TABLOID, Morris concocts another jaw-dropping portrayal, this time of a phenomenally driven woman whose romantic obsessions and delusions catapult her over the edge into scandal-sheet notoriety and an unimaginable life. Long before the days of Lindsay, Britney and the 24-hour news cycle, Joyce McKinney reigned as the ensnaring Femme Fatale accused of sexual defiance. In TABLOID, she is back, and Morris offers up his best guilty treasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Truth stranger than fiction! 23 Feb 2012
By Bluebell TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Older viewers may recall the news story in the 1970s of a young Mormon man who was allegedly held captive by a woman and forced into having sex with her. The tabloid press went mad with the story with the Daily Express and the Daily Mail later vying with each other to tell the story. The woman in question was Joyce McKinney, the former Miss Wyoming, who is the subject of this documentary film. The 1970s story was only the start of a jaw-dropping series of events that, if this was mere fiction, no one could believe was true. Miss McKinney appears to be a Walter Mitty-like character living in a fantasy world of obsession. Interviews and short film clips from her, and the other protagonists in her eventful life, are the substance of this documentary film. She is obviously very resourceful and determined to get her own way no matter what the expense and is engaging and very confident on film. Don't be put off by the beginning of the film, which seems like an amateur video, because it really is a extraordinary story with some hilarious revelations.

4.0 out of 5 stars Skiing naked down mount Everest 27 Mar 2012
By technoguy VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The tale of the Mormon missionary abducted at gunpoint in Surrey and press ganged into sexual enslavement by a former Miss Wyoming that had followed him here.The dominant Miss,who was Joyce McKinney,found herself at the centre of a tabloid storm. Kirk Anderson was the victim supposedly brainwashed by his Mormonism to recant the 3 days of love and sex he had in a Devon cottage,to stay within his church.Morris shows us the feeding frenzy of 3 tabloids, The Daily Express,The Mirror and The Sun,depicting the `war of pictures' that ensued.Miss McKinney,she remains unmarried to this day,tells her side of this extraordinary yarn.Morris utilizes tabloid-style or tongue-in-cheek photographic and cinematic inserts and McKinney's in-studio interview to dominate the film's running time. Morris makes the effects of the frenzy plain.:"you learn when you're famous who your friends are",she says,what few friends she had betrayed her.She comes across as an eccentric,incurable romantic,with undying love for Anderson.She is rendered at the end with some dignity,crying over the death of her dog Boogie,and the elation of having it genetically cloned by a Korean geneticist,a victim of our own crazy notions of love,loyalty and idealism.She has since filed a suit against the film's creator,claiming to have been once again,misrepresented. Anderson,wisely, refused to be interviewed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 28 Jun 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can see why Joyce McKinney was less than impressed by this documentary - tawdry and sensationalist are words that spring to mind. She comes across as a sensitive soul who deserves better. I feel ashamed for buying this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant film 9 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Underrated, one of Errol's more playful and throw away films but that's the nature of a tabloid story I guess. Such a well told tale and beautifully, craftily edited.
