A peek into the clandestine world of competitive endurance tickling.

"Tickled" may be the oddest and most absurd documentary you'll ever encounter. An investigation into a secret world very few people knew existed, this film displays elements of intrigue, blackmail and revenge with just a hint of inadvertent eroticism. Unexpected twists and turns make this a surprisingly engaging roller coaster ride, with moments of pure horror, sadness and disbelief. The murky and anti-climactic finale does the film no favours, but this could just tickle your fancy.
