Joyce Mckinney Miss Wyoming, Story of obsession, kidnapping, sexual deception and confusion, Tabloid Errol Morris’ appears as an almost giddy affirmation of the old cliché: Truth is stranger than fiction. Very, very strange. Based on the exploits of the real life of Joyce McKinney, a former Miss Wyoming – a woman with a radiant smile and an IQ through the roof – Tabloid is like a detective story full of surrealism. These things could not have happened, right?
Apparently, he did. In a stretch late 70′s juicy, McKinney was found on the covers of the mirror, the Daily Express, and a pile of leaves scandal in the UK, charged with the kidnapping of Kirk Anderson, a Mormon from Utah, and holding a prisoner in a cottage in the English countryside and forced to have sex. The headlines screamed: “Kidnapped!” “Sex and the chains!” Accompanied by a provocative photo of a n*de, McKinney – unearthed by an intrepid reporter looking into her past.
The story does not end there. With McKinney cheerfully explains Morris Interrotron unwavering camera (and with the recordings and diary entries, pictures of old movies on television and home beautification and enlightenment), Tabloid paints a picture of a woman in the relentless pursuit of “special boy”. The fact that this guy, Anderson, does not sit for an interview seemingly rational explanations McKinney does seem more, well, there.
Morris, who has explored the nature of truth and reality in serious documentaries (The Thin Blue Line, The Fog of War) and funny strange (Gates of Heaven, Vernon, Florida), the strings on a radio program, a journalist, a photographer, and an airline pilot support, discredit, and elaborated in the narrative of McKinney. It is a collection of cups Raymond Chandler could not have invented.
Morris filmmaker is having a great old time here (what can not?) Implementing a dizzying collage of tabloid headlines and archive clips, winking and nudging, highlighting and overdoing it. There is nothing mean or discretion on how Morris is dedicated to his business – it must have been kicking it with joy like a bizarre chapter of history is undone to reveal the next.
And do not give anything away, obsessions, McKinney does not stop with the love of her life, unsuspecting man, Anderson. In her dogged pursuit of facts, Tabloid leaves no stone unturned.
