TICK­LED ★★★★

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM -

Di­rected by David Far­rier and Dy­lan Reeve At first glance Tick­led, a new Os­car-tipped doc­u­men­tary re­sem­bles one of those sex­ual freaku­men­taries that oc­ca­sion­ally pop up on Chan­nel 4. It’s much, much weirder than that. David Far­rier, a Kiwi TV re­porter, hap­pens on a site fea­tur­ing hours of videos wherein a young man is strapped down and tick­led by other young men, all dressed in match­ing Adi­das sports-gear. His in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the world of “com­pet­i­tive tick­ling” soon bring him into the or­bit of more sin­is­ter forces. You couldn’t make it up. 15A, lim­ited re­lease, 93 min TB
