Storyline

Eight years in the making, The Joe Show is a shocking and wildly entertaining documentary on America's most controversial Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and his ring-master's approach to modern media, politics and law enforcement.

He's famous, he's outrageous, he may be dangerous... and it's all just part of The Joe Show, a ... Written by Randy Murray Productions

Sheriff has road in to town
6 January 2015 | by wilson trivinoSee all my reviews

  • The no nonsense sheriff of Arizona Joe Arpaio is not your average politician. He has been able to use the media spotlight to focus on some critical issues that affect his community. He takes an unconventional approach to tell the story that crime does not pay. Some may say it is sensationalism other may say a thinking out of the box method. Eight years in the making, this documentary takes you behind the scenes of what it takes to be the main law man. With a media public relations at his side the good sheriff put inmates in pink underwear, establishes an all-volunteer posse, and even tackles federal issues like immigration. This movie is a fascinating deeper look into this maverick of a politician that is helping to solve large problems with unconventional ideas. Directed by Randy Murray and this story has been called a tragic comedy of historic significance. A must see film for any student of politics and political drama.
