Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr Movie
Before entire networks were built on populist personalities; before reality morphed into a TV genre; the masses fixated on a single, sociopathic star: controversial talk-show host Morton Downey, Jr. In the late 80s, Downey tore apart the traditional talk format by turning debate of current issues into a gladiator pit. His blow-smoke-in-your-face style drew a rabid cult following, as well as the title “Father of Trash Television.” ÉVOCATEUR dissects television’s most notorious agitator.
