Tickled is perhaps the weirdest thing I've seen this year. The filmmaking itself is rather frustrating and has a lot of limitations, but the content is... fascinating, jawdropping, perplexing in the extreme.

You won't be able to stop talking about it.

In fact, what the filmmakers stumble upon is so puzzling, so bizarre, that I am not going to say anything else about it. But this is one strange story.

*Shout out to my friend Chris who convinced me to watch this, and to my local independent theatre for carrying it.
