About Tabloid




Thirty years before the antics of Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears were regular gossip fodder, Miss Wyoming Joyce McKinney made her mark as a tabloid staple ne plus ultra. Morris 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 across the globe, into jail, and onto the front page. Joyce’s labyrinthine crusade for love takes her through a surreal world of kidnapping, manacled Mormons, risqué photography, magic underwear, and celestial sex—until her dream is finally realized in a cloning laboratory in Seoul, South Korea.


By turns funny, strange, and disturbing, TABLOID is a vivid portrayal of a phenomenally driven woman whose romantic obsessions and delusions catapult her over the edge into scandal sheet notoriety and an unimaginable life.

Acclaim

"4 STARS!  SPELLBINDING.  ONE OF THE DAMNEDEST FILMS ERROL MORRIS HAS EVER MADE."
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A GUARANTEED GOOD TIME AT THE MOVIES."
Ty Burr, The Boston Globe
"ASTONISHING.  An impossible and perfect embodiment of just how curious our species can be."
A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"INTENSELY PLEASURABLE.  We laugh like mad…What a treasure trove.  With each event, one’s jaw drops further and further.  TABLOID is candy for voyeurs."
David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"MESMERIZING.  A MUST-SEE."
Michael O’Sullivan, Washington Post
"DELIRIOUSLY ENTERTAINING.  A GIFT FROM THE MOVIEMAKING GODS."
Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star-Tribune
"GRADE A.  Succulent, Fascinating, Bizarrely touching.  Pure Movie Candy."
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"IRRESISTIBLE.  Morris is a storyteller of the highest order, and within seconds, he draws us into his subject, doling out details, making us wonder what will happen next and dropping bombs for maximum impact."
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"ASTONISHING.  THOROUGHLY ENTERTAINING."
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"A sharp, runaway RASHOMON parable inside one of the most thoroughly entertaining films of the year."
Eric Hynes, The Village Voice
"A playful, voyeuristic guilty pleasure, an exploration of the wacky and tacky and our compulsive need to feed on such tales.  It’s consistently a kick, and it couldn’t be more relevant."
Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"Irresistible.  Endlessly entertaining.  When Errol Morris decides he wants to entertain the hell out of us, he delivers. "
Tom Carson, GQ
