Errol Morris  July 12, 2011

Errol Morris's film Tabloid is an entertaining and provocative compendium of some of his favorite themes, including crime, obsession, truth, and the nature of self-presentation. It digs deeply into a sensational and salacious news story about Joyce McKinney, a former beauty queen whose alleged kidnapping and rape of a Mormon in England in 1977 made her a pop culture sensation. This conversation between Morris and Chief Curator David Schwartz at Museum of the Moving Image included a lively exchange with the audience about Morris's attitude towards his subject, and whether the film encourages us to admire her or laugh at her...or both.
