TABLOID (Errol Morris, 2010)

****
USA
Morris' lightest documentary in decades covers the strange case of Joyce McKinney, the ex-beauty queen who may or may not have abducted a Mormon missionary in Devon for a weekend of love and chains, and who continued to lead a bizarre life long after these events.

For once Morris doesn't seek out any metaphysical underpinnings. He comes to some general, rather familiar conclusions about the subjective nature of truth. But mainly he's just out to tell a cracking, outrageous yarn.
