Tickled (2016)

Director(s): David Farrier, Dylan Reeve. 92 min. New Zealand. Rated R. Documentary.

A New Zealand documentary TV show host accidentally runs into a "Tickling Endurance Contest" in LA, is threatened not to pursue the story when he becomes curious, and then discovers the very bizarre world of tickling fetish, and an underworld of privileged organizers who blackmail contestants, without even much financial gain. So that's all there is to it: some weird subject about some psychotic sadists. I'm not sure painstaking investigative journalism on out-of-this-world subjects, let alone giving them cinematic forms, is worth anyone's time.
