Tiger King promotional poster featuring the two warring sides separated by a tiger
Watched "Tiger King" Not Your Average Joe from Netflix
Directed by Rebecca Chaiklin, Eric Goode. With Bhagavan Antle, Carole Baskin, Howard Baskin, Susan Bass. Met Joe Exotic, the gun-toting operator of an Oklahoma big cat park. He's been accused of hiring someone to kill his chief rival Carole Baskin.
I’ve met all too many Joes. He may seem like a caricature to many, but there are a lot of him out there. The entirety of this seems to me like a replaying of the right/left political battle, but translated immediately into culture and with a more extreme bent. Even the promo poster properly puts Joe Exotic on the right and Carole Baskin on the left.
