Tickled DVD Review

Tickled

“Tickled” was one of 2016’s best films.

David Farrier (a reporter who also directs and narrates the film) covers offbeat stories for his job and he has turned his attention to investigate the world of competitive endurance tickling which involves ripped men being tied up and tickled for fetish videos essentially. With the help of TV producer Dylan Reeve, the two decide to investigate a mysterious company producing the videos which leads them down a bizarre path involving potential legal trouble, interviews with former participants who reveal horror stories, the history of tickling videos and the truth behind the man that might be behind the site. The more they uncover, the crazier the story gets.

I’m not sure why it has taken 3 years for a physical media release of “Tickled,” but I’m glad it has finally hit DVD as the world needs to see this bonkers documentary that honestly plays like a thriller at times. I don’t want to reveal too much about the story as this is the type of movie best watched knowing as little as possible, but this under-the-radar investigative documentary is one of those “truth is stranger than fiction” stories that has to be seen to be believed. With each passing minute, it becomes more and more bizarre and you’ll find yourself on the edge of your seat wondering where this documentary about fetishes, homophobia, and criminal activities is headed.

Even if the subject matter doesn’t appeal to you, don’t let that prevent you from checking this one out. If you love documentary films and series, this is a perfect movie to seek out.

Video/Audio:

Presentation: 1.85:1. How does it look? The picture varies in quality like any documentary film. Overall though, it’s a solid standard definition transfer.

Audio Track: Dolby Digital 5.1. How does it sound? It does the job.
