The most awesome doc of 2017.
It tells the story of a journalist who starts his own investigation regarding the international (exclusively) male tickling resistance tournament.
And as the movie poster states – there’s nothing funny about it, and it’s certainly not what it seems.
The inquiry goes deeper and deeper as to discover the person who single handedly funds the contest.
It shows interviews with ex-employees and ex-contestants who initially received all kinds of pleasantries such as big money sums and expensive gifts and toys…
and whose lives were ruined as soon as they sought to (only) exit the organization for whatever simple reason.
To me this was a great surprise of a film; much revealing yet not extremely controversial.
A possible character study of cult-systems, damaged psyches, and psychology of individuals that grew in an elite environment.
