"Crazy documentary by Kiwi film maker"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

My husband and I saw this movie at an international film festival. Crazy, incredulous, confusing, unbelievable are all words that spring to mind. We were both transfixed for the entirety of the film. When you think you are starting to understand what might be happening there is a twist or turn to have you questioning everything again. A very enjoyable documentary based on the world of competitive tickling.

Description

Tickled

After stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking-the sender mocks Farrier's sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity. Discovering the truth becomes Farrier's obses­sion, despite increasingly sinister threats and warnings. With humor and determination, Farrier and co-director Dylan Reeve summon up every resource available to get to the bottom of this tickling worm hole.

Tickled Reviews

Tickled is an unexpectedly engrossing documentary that's built around the hitherto unexplored (on film anyway) world of "competitive endurance tickling”." – Times (UK)

“With startling moments at every turn, this is a genuine jaw-dropper, a classic piece of investigative film-making as Farrier and co-director Dylan Reeve display tenacity and fortitude in penetrating a web of lies, manipulation… and tickling.” – Radio Times

“Farrier doesn't overlook the amusing oddness of such a strange corner of the internet, but treats the subjects of the videos respectfully.” – Total Film
