"Tiger King"

The new Netflix series "Tiger King" is so engrossingly out-there that it nearly comes across like one of Christopher Guest's faux documentaries ("Waiting for Guffman," "Best in Show," "A Mighty Wind"). But the wild story that unfolds here, centered on tiger trainer Joe Exotic (a man who lives up to his name) and incorporating polygamy, con artists, murder for hire and, uh, tigers, is entirely true. Look for a full review from Brad Keefe this Friday, and check out the trailer below in the interim.
