Step into Louis Therouxs weird and wonderful world with The Louis Theroux Collection, a selection of the best from his critically acclaimed series: Weird Weekends; When Louis Met and Louis And

The award winning series, Louis Therouxs Weird Weekends, delves into the strange lives of some of Americas most colourful and controversial characters. No subject is overlooked as Louis meets members of the swastika worshipping white supremacists, middle aged swingers and politely asks porn stars "Is being a porn star really the dream job for any man?"

Louis unique and relaxed interview style offers the opportunity to get up close and personal with his interviewees, revealing fascinating eccentricities never seen before.

When Louis Met, introduces us to the private lives of disgraced MP Neil Hamilton and his wife Christine, while cigar smoking, tracksuit wearing and self-proclaimed legend Jimmy Saville talks about the death of his mother - his beloved Duchess, his charity work and cruise work. Louis also interviews the eccentric Chris Eubank, subtly unveiling his insecurities and his new life as a celebrity following his retirement for boxing.

In Louis And The Nazis he travels to California to get under the skin of the American neo-Nazi movement and investigates whether they are dangerous political extremists or simply delusional? In Louis And The Brothel, he takes a six-week sojourn at America's biggest legal brothel - "The Wild Horse Ranch" in Reno, Nevada, meeting the girls and the punters, including a well-hung cowboy and a disabled widow.

The Louis Theroux Collection is packed full of hilarious observations and quick-witted banter as Louis cleverly invites his interviewees to reveal their inner most quirks and traits, giving his audience a unique insight into the person behind the persona.

A must-have purchase for fans, this four-disc box set also includes never previously released excerpts of Louis reports on Michael Moores TV Nation featuring early encounters with the Ku Klux Clan, Millennialist religious leaders and evangelical policemen in the United States.

. . .A legend who befriends people and then stabs them in the back on TV.

Never been comfortable with his approach.

Damn.. 'I thought the collection would be complete. Alas it's missing a lot of great Louis Theroux episodes- some available on past dvds (Hypnosis, UFOs)'

true i agree, but its not that bad and makes good entertainment for us, its a bit like ali g but more subtle, its the looks he gives the camera when the people he is with are not looking, he makes out like he's a bit slow to his subjects whilst taking the mic at the same time. not a legend but not far off either! still love the show that are being played on dave every now and then.

Yeah poor old Max Clifford. Max is such a nice guy too! ;-)

I dont think he really backstabs. He merely observes, and often ends up empathising with the people he's interviewing. He's interested in understanding how people think and why, I think. And he has an unusual name which makes him seem that bit more mystical.

Absolutely correct! He doesn't 'stab people in the back', and is often sympathetic or just plain bemused. Let's face it, he's no Borat when it comes to his approach but the outcome is often the same, i.e. those participating allow all their bigotries, intolerance or just plain strangeness come to the fore.

^^^ What they said. Not really backstabbing at all, I think he is just very good at allowing his subjects to show their true colours. Which, considering the people who he reports on, usually makes great TV!
#11
I would love to get hold of the African hunting episode.
#12
I think he just plays a role where he makes the interviewee believe that they are in control of the situation and often this allows them to show their true colours... which are often undesireable or plain stupid... but that's the fun in interviewing those particular people anyway, right? They put themselves in that situation because of their own reading of and attitude towards others/life.

Great price, voted hot
