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, but also the title 'Father of Trash Television.' "Evocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie" dissects the mind and motivation of television's most notorious agitator.
