TICKLED: Check Out An Exclusive Clip From The Director's Commentary
After winning raves on the festival circuit David Farrier and Dylan Reeve's documentary Tickled hits digital outlets - iTunes, Google Play and all the rest - tomorrow (November 1st) and so if you've not yet delved into the perplexing, hilarious and often bizarre look at the world of 'competitive tickling' well, yout rime is almost here. And for those who have but want more? Well, your time is almost here as well because this digital release comes complete with a generous assortment of extra features.
After stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking—the sender mocks Farrier's sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity.
Discovering the truth becomes Farrier’s obsession, despite increasingly sinister threats and warnings. With humor and determination, Farrier and co-director Dylan Reeve summon up every resource available to get to the bottom of this tickling wormhole.
Complete with a deleted scene, footage of the directors (and assorted others) being tickled and a pair of audio commentaries (because, really you can't make a film about tickling without having some good stories to tell) this is one dandy release. And if you want a little teaser of the commentary, we've got it below with an exclusive clip from the film.
