Rewind: 'Tabloid' documentary a sensation

Tabloid

Tabloid Credit: "Tabloid"

For his latest documentary "Tabloid," the always-interesting Errol Morris sets his sights on former Miss Wyoming Joyce McKinney, who, in the 1970s, became a tabloid sensation after she kidnapped her ex-boyfriend Kirk Anderson, a Mormon missionary. Much has been written about how McKinney - who claims that Anderson went willingly - would show up at screenings of this film screaming that it's all lies. We don't know if that's true or not, but the film presents a balanced perspective and is definitely a must-see. (DVD, $24.98)
