As Scandalous suggests in its fascinating dirty-laundry exposť of the once-powerful nameplate, the Enquirer has hardly been missed - except perhaps when it comes to details of the crimes of Tori Spelling.
Scandalous: The True Story of the National Enquirer is a zippy, entertaining, cynically funny but also genuinely disturbing look back at one of the most successful newspapers in the history of the United States.
In the end, the goal of the documentary, told mainly from the point of view of Enquirer alumni, is to be entertaining, and director Mark Landsman succeeds on that level, keeping things brisk and highly visual.
