Underrated Movie #355 ~ Tickled

Tickled
Journalist David Farrier stumbles upon a mysterious tickling competition online. As he delves deeper he comes up against fierce resistance, but that doesn’t stop him getting to the bottom of a story stranger than fiction. (IMDb) I’ve seen quite a few documentaries that expose eccentrics and strange subcultures that I never even knew existed, but “Tickled” is without a doubt one of the most bizarre tales I’ve ever come across. This documentary will make you uncomfortable, but story takes twists you never could have predicted. Like the tagline says on the movie poster… “It’s not what you think.” My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars.

A Murder in the Park
This arresting documentary chronicles a murder case that made headlines in 1999 when Alstory Simon’s confession led to the release of death-row inmate Anthony Porter, who was convicted of the crime. But his exoneration has been called into question. You know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions, and I loved this documentary because it exposes do-gooders for what they really sometimes are. My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars.
