Theroux is back

26 January, 2007

LouisLouisIf you havent already heard of Louis Theroux

In Weird Weekends (1998–2000), Louis followed marginal American subcultures like survivalists, gangsta rappers and porn stars, often by living among or close to the people involved. Often Theroux’s documentary method subtly exposes the contradictions or farcical elements of such seriously-held beliefs as homophobia or racism.

For those poor UK inhabitants its on BBC Two on Sunday 28 January at 2100GMT (otherwise you should be able to watch it on the BBC website if you know how to change proxies..)
