Errol Morris and The Case of the Manacled Mormon

Tabloid (in theaters now) is the follow up to 2008′s Standard Operating Procedure, Tabloid centers on “The Case of the Manacled Mormon” in which a former Miss Wyoming flew to England in 1977 in hopes of saving the love of her life from a cult.  In the press release, Morris describes the film as such:
“It’s a return to my favorite genre – sick, sad and funny – but of course, it’s more than that.  It is a meditation on how we are shaped by the media and even more powerfully, by ourselves.”
 Here at Fayes we have Morris' First Person series (which originally aired on television in 2001) as well as almost all of his incredible documentaries dating back to 1978. 

Be sure to check out Errol Morris' awesome blog on the New York Times website.
