Voyeur review – Gay Talese meets a motel snooper in creepy Netflix documentary

Voyeur () - Rotten Tomatoes

C lad in Mars Blackmon sunglasses and a manicured beard befitting a third-string Bond villain, Gerald Foos is one magnificent creep. Which he did. Over the years, Foos peeped on and enthusiastically masturbated to hundreds of unwitting strangers as they engaged in every coital act under the sun. Because he had kept a detailed log of the activities and used faintly clinical language, Foos was able to rationalize his perversion as academic study. To put it mildly, their dynamic was not conducive to the kind of objective detachment that makes for a responsible profile. That this could compromise his integrity as a trustworthy chronicler does not occur to him. By the time that Foos and Talese warmly embrace and agree that they shall remain good friends even after the inevitably scandalous article runs, some rather serious journalistic codes have been violated.

It globally premiered as a Netflix Original documentary film in December Journalism icon Gay Talese reports on Gerald Foos, the owner of a Colorado motel, who allegedly secretly watched his guests with the aid of specially designed ceiling vents, peering down from an "observation platform" he built in the motel's attic. Critical reviews have been mostly positive. The website's critical consensus reads, "Absorbing, unpredictable, and overall compelling, Voyeur is a singularly unusual — and utterly memorable — documentary experience.
Superficially, Gay Talese and Gerald Foos would seem to have nothing in common besides their age. The former is a veteran, celebrated New York writer: the impeccably dressed and highly influential pioneer of New Journalism. The latter is a former Colorado motel owner: a hot-tempered, heavyset man who lives in paranoid suburban seclusion.
