Exclusive Columbus engagement! Errol Morris, 2010
Aug 19, 2011–Sept 1, 2011
"Hilariously bonkers… a story whose twists are unthinkable! One of the most thoroughly entertaining films of the year."—Village Voice

Academy Award–winner Errol Morris's Tabloid follows the much stranger-than-fiction adventures of Joyce McKinney, a former Miss Wyoming with an IQ of 168, whose single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams leads her across the globe and directly onto the front pages of British tabloid newspapers. Joyce's crusade for love and personal vindication, as illustrated by Morris, takes her through a surreal world of abduction at gun point, manacled Mormons, oddball accomplices, bondage modeling, magic underwear, and dreams of celestial unions. This notorious affair from the late 1970s, known in Britain as the "Mormon sex in chains case," 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. Errol Morris has proven to be one of the most influential documentary filmmakers working today, with groundbreaking films such as The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of War, as well as landmark accounts of peculiar people in Gates of Heaven, Fast, Cheap & Out of Control, and Mr. Death. Tabloid is Morris at his outrageous and entertaining best. (88 mins., video)
