Tabloid (2010)

Director: Errol Morris. 87 min. Rated R. Documentary.

Story of Joyce McKinney, histrionic ex-beauty queen/pathological liar, who kidnapped and "raped" a Mormon in the 70s, and denies all allegations in the face of hardcore evidence - believing she was the victim of public lust for tabloids. You sit and watch this expertly made documentary, and think how every single word and every tear this lady sheds, is a very well-showcased lie. Towards the end the film goes on a tangent about her obsession with cloning her dead dog, which relevance was lost to me. For a more impressive work by Morris, I'd recommend The Fog of War.
