A film we put up on our list of Most Anticipated Films From 2011 We’ve Already Seen as well as on our rundown of Alternative Summer Movie Highlights, Errol Morris‘ “Taboid” is truly unlike any documentary you will see this year. And as it gears up to roll into theaters this Friday, we have a great prize for a very lucky reader.
A grand prize featuring a “Tabloid” poster signed by director Errol Morris, as well as a copy of the soundtrack featuring the film’s score by composer John Kusiak is up for grabs.
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.
