In Tabloid, Academy Award winning filmmaker Errol Morris The Fog Of War 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 on a labyrinthine crusade for love. Down a surreal rabbit hole of kidnapping, masochistic Mormons, risque photography, magic underwear, celestial sex, jail time and a cloning laboratory in South Korea, Joyce's fantastic exploits were constant headlines.
This documentary is centred around a fascinating yarn but the casual way it dismisses its subject is uncomfortable - most acutely when they are joking about the woman at the centre of the story hysterically threatening to throw herself of a balcony. For a film called Tabloid it does nothing to judge the actions of the papers or the salacious appetites that drive them - its merely retells the story from different perspectives without drawing any real conclusions. It is a good story though!
