Doors will open 30 min. before showtime. No one will be admitted after the film has begun.
Equal parts love story, film noir, brainy B-movie and demented fairy tale, the brand-new feature from Academy Award-winner Errol Morris (The Fog of War, Gates of Heaven, The Thin Blue Line) is a delirious meditation on hysteria — both public and personal — from a filmmaker who continues to break down and blow open the documentary genre with his penetrating portraits of eccentric and profoundly complex characters. In Tabloid, Morris concocts another jaw-dropping portrayal, this time of phenomenally driven former “beauty queen” Joyce McKinney, whose romantic single-minded devotion to the man of her dreams leads her across the globe, and directly onto the front pages of the ruthless British tabloid newspapers. Morris effortlessly pilots you through Joyce’s much-stranger-than-fiction journey, as he weaves a web of gunpoint abduction, manacled Mormons, oddball accomplices, bondage modeling, magic underwear and dreams of celestial unions! Errol Morris will be here in person for a Q&A after the screening! Dir. Errol Morris, 2010, 35mm, 87 min.
If you’re unable to make it to this screening, Tabloid opens on July 15th at The Landmark, Sunset 5, Town Center 5 and Playhouse 7! Check out the Tabloid Facebook page here!”
