Review of Louis Theroux: Shooting Joe Exotic (2021)

Moving picture, 89 minutes

Louis Theroux (cast).

Seen in 2022.

Louis Theroux’s relationship with “Joe Exotic” of Tiger King (2020), from a three-day shoot they had in 2012, up to the ultimate failure of the campaign to get President Donald Trump to pardon the man for his crimes.

A lot of this is just about Theroux and Joe, which is boring, but the interview with Joe’s brother and the brother’s wife is interesting and the trajectory of Joe’s development as a narcissist is more apparent. The Big Cat Public Safety Act is not mentioned, but Baskin and Theroux are seen going through the ruins of Joe’s old park.
