Doesn't tell us anything about sleazy journalism or the insatiable thirst for gossip that we didn't already know. Far-fetched and overblown just about sums it up.

Gotcha sleaze, bondage, lapsed libido and sacred Mormon underwear. And no different from trotting out the disfigured for amusement, at circuses of thankfully bygone days. More to the point, what in the world happened to Errol Morris? Tabloid, indeed.

"Tabloid" shows that an oddball lead character and a smirky style do not necessarily add up to a complete movie.

Morris' choice of title may be ripe with ironic intent, but the film is what it is: an arrogant, obscene, inexcusable example of tabloid exploitation.

[Morris] tells us nothing about the prurience and gutter morality of the tabloid newspaper industry that Britons haven't heard every day and that the world, in the Murdochgate era, is now hearing likewise.

...a film with meager production values about an odd woman and what she did to inspire the British tabloids...not for everybody, but for some it might have a morbid fascination.

'Tabloid' never rises above -- in fact, it becomes -- the absurdity it depicts.

It's a bizarre "where are they now?" story of a rather unedifying kind, and one feels ashamed of laughing at this sad exhibitionist.

Morris has found a real character in McKinney, but to what end, I couldn't say.

Evading the issue of what used to be called "yellow journalism," Morris' depraved method prevents us from ever getting out of this swamp.

Tabloid is totally fascinating. It features brilliant editing and pacing along with well thought out concepts that are expertly executed. A must see!

A truly bizarre tale, Tabloid is enjoyable but not as compelling as some of Morris' previous documentaries...

Expertly guided by Errol Morris, and featuring a wholly compelling subject, this is a fascinating exploration of truth and memory.

Tabloid is such a mirthful, fascinating and fantastically entertaining documentary that you can't help but get caught up in all the sordid fun

As with any of Morris' documentaries, Tabloid is thematically rich beyond the bounds of its central focus.

Tabloid is a nice commentary on [Errol Morris'] particular style of 'truth-telling' and objectivity. In the end, we're all lying simply by telling our version of the truth.

Tabloid becomes an elaborate game of he-said-she-said that winks at the viewer with enough self-consciousness to share the joke.

Tabloid is a documentary that proves conclusively that the truth really is stranger than fiction.
