Absorbing, unpredictable, and overall compelling, Voyeur is a singularly unusual -- and utterly memorable -- documentary experience.

Movie Info

Gerald Foos bought a motel in Colorado in the 1960s, furnished the room with louvered vents that allowed him to spy on his guests, and kept a journal of their sexual encounters...among other things. As writer Gay Talese, who had known Foos for more than three decades, came close to the publication of his book The Voyeur's Motel (preceded by an excerpt in The New Yorker), factual discrepancies in Foos's account emerged, and documentarians Kane and Koury were on hand to record some wild encounters between the veteran New York journalist and his enigmatic subject. A Netflix release.

Audience Reviews for Voyeur


An intriguing documentary that peeks at the creepy real story of a narcissistic voyeur who wanted to be like God and have the power to secretly watch other people's lives, and it becomes fascinating as inconsistencies begin to appear and we wonder what is true and false in his claims.

Could have been a bit longer and a bit less self important. That being said, it deserves a lot of credit for making both Gerald Foos and Gay Talese look absolutely pathetic by the end.
