  1. Matthew Martens's rating of the film Tickled

    From seemingly innocuous, even ridiculous, beginnings, Tickled builds gradually towards a sustained, unbearable tension. Formally straightforward, it traces a relentless trajectory, finally terminating outside the film itself, soon after the premiere of its follow-up short, The Tickle King, in a tragedy that must have spooked the filmmakers badly, bleakly punctuating their excavation of desire, cruelty and shame.

  2. Lola Finch's rating of the film Tickled

    Hmm ending felt a bit rushed

  3. PeterK94's rating of the film Tickled

    An interesting premise that starts strong, but doesn’t have enough material to cover the runtime.

  4. nadka's rating of the film Tickled

    That's a very badly made documentary, with a problematic ending.

  5. Matt Richards's rating of the film Tickled

    As a doco it doesn't reinvent the wheel but the case-study is fascinating and the anxiety generated is palpable as it takes us well down the rabbit hole ala Theroux into a world of power and egomania. Highly recommended! 4 stars

  6. Diderot's rating of the film Tickled

    I was expecting something far more insidious and conspiratorial than what the filmmakers actually reveal, but it still makes for a uniquely entertaining viewing.

  7. Eeeeeeeeeee's rating of the film Tickled

  8. Disa's rating of the film Tickled

    the fun part? first 20 minutes. on second half and so on it's just too... basic.

  9. babycakesromero's rating of the film Tickled

    there's weird and there's weird and there's this...

  10. steeeeellaaaaa (Iulia N)'s rating of the film Tickled

    i've been waiting to see this for a while, and all the hype was worth it

  11. Tigrão's rating of the film Tickled

    The most bizarre documentary ever, and one that had me totally riveted to this insane story.

  12. JCPJD's rating of the film Tickled

    Farrier comes across as the New Zealand Louis Theroux in this nuts and bolts, follow-the-story type film about a sinister character who has created a world for himself through manipulation and litigation. The film only really came fully to life when the personal details of the character emerged - and then the credits rolled. Still, it's a decent watch.

  13. Mario Tomchev's rating of the film Tickled

  14. El Biffo's rating of the film Tickled

    Although straightforward and bland in style, this doc falls squarely in the WTF? category. The tickling fetish is a bit weird, but ok, not passing judgment on a harmless fetish, however when it starts to involve threats, intimidation and harassment of participants lured into it by financial need, then it becomes apparent that this isn't about a tickling fetish. It's about how the rich and powerful abuse their power.

  15. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film Tickled

    A film which brings you in under certain auspices and then completely flips your expectations. It leaves you feeling wildly upset about the world by the end, knowing that certain abusive things go on and that there seems to be little to be done to stop them.

  16. bryanvmh's rating of the film Tickled

    Manipulative and self-indulgent, but scary and tense

  17. James Mackin's rating of the film Tickled

    You think it's just a silly little thing, all this tickling they're doing. But no. There's some fucked up shit going on here.

  18. Mcpeer's rating of the film Tickled

    A bizzarre rabbit hole of a documentary that gets weirder and stranger, and scarier the more it progresses. The story actually continued way after the end credits - as you can see in the HBO special The Tickle King - a must watch. Tickled is a really unbelievable movie about a bizarre subject that will keep you on edge from beginning to end. It's hard to make heads or tails but it's a ride that you won't forget.

  19. A47's rating of the film Tickled

    Tickling ain't so funny. The film itself lacked a resolution in many ways, but the recent release of "The Tickle King," brings it in stripes both thematically and narratively - to the point that it should be forever added to the original. Sad to see such repression contort an individual into a monster. If the filmmaking did anything to contort me, it was in soliciting empathy for a psychopath and bully.

  20. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Tickled

    This is insane. I couldn't help but laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of this documentary; but David Farrier takes us on a wild ride that continues to the prove the age-old adage that truth is stranger than fiction.

  21. Aardsy's rating of the film Tickled

    Weird. Soooo weird, man.

  22. Rocco's rating of the film Tickled

    Quite thrilling, but less than the sum of it's parts.
