Filmmaker Morris never challenges McKinney in any of her claims so all we have to base our opinions on are Mckinney's interview, which was probably a wise decision cause I don't think she's the type to take kindly anybody questioning her. Early on she claimed to have an I.Q. of 168!!! There's also interviews with a few around the edges of the story characters two newspaper reporters and one of the guys who backed out early on. Unfortunately Kirk Anderson refused to take part in the film. Even so Joyce is one hell of a character an carries the entire film. Words explode out of her mouth nonstop and it's pretty apparent that she's unhinged, but that just makes for great entertainment.
TABLOID is a fun lightweight documentary and definitely worth checking out.
