  • Errol Morris's documentary was made, and scheduled for release, long before the News of the World story broke. The smart part is that the film dissects those excesses deftly with a quasitabloid style of its own. show more

  • There's nothing mean-spirited, or judgmental, about the way Morris goes about his business - he must have been kicking himself with glee as one bizarre strand of the story unravels to reveal the next. show more

  • Morris clearly invested so much time and energy in McKinney's story because he saw her as emblematic of our crazed times. Others might wonder whether the sad saga deserves quite this much attention, but there's no denying the film's morbid fascination. show more

    I never heard about this story guess I was too young to keep up with international headlines back when it all happened. Fascinating story about a passionate young woman who followed her heart and ended up one of the most famous people in the press and media. An amazing and disturbing story that didn\'t end there, this lady keeps surprising even mush later in life. A very entertaining documentary and fascinating story about the life of a blond girl passionate for what she believes in.
