Event Description

After the mind-blowing visuals and intense subject matter of HELL AND BACK AGAIN, we thought we'd take a walk on the lighter side: TABLOID, documentary legend Errol Morris's (The Thin Blue Line, The Fog of War) latest film about "North Carolinian would-be femme fatale," Joyce McKinney.

From The New Yorker: Morris’s subject is sexual fantasy and a particular kind of American stupidity—the ability to substitute self-justification for self-knowledge. His tone is merry. There are montages of newspaper clippings and funny little animated episodes, with cutouts skittering across the image, as in a Monty Python sketch. The movie’s over-all metaphor is bondage—McKinney’s possible handling of her lover; her way (as the movie suggests) of making money when she was young; her enthrallment to her image of herself as the heroine of a grand passion.
