  • ★★★★½ review by Brendan Michaels on Letterboxd

    Tickled is the most interesting documentary of 2016. In it that you expect it to go in one direction that would make for a light hearted tale but quickly takes a sharp left turn into something far more sinister than I could have imagined. I'd suggest going fully blind into this film. It's some of the best investigative journalism in a documentary that I've seen in recent years.

  • ★★★★ review by Eli Hayes on Letterboxd

    Very good, endlessly fascinating and darkly hilarious, but every time Carruth's Upstream Color score popped up I got so distracted, haha (probably because it's one of my favorite contemporary film scores; weird to hear it recycled like that).

  • ★★★★ review by Wes on Letterboxd

    I love it when you finish a movie and you're too freaked out to even move. If you ever wondered what it would be like to watch something that seems like an SNL skit at the beginning slowly devolve into a Fincher-esque thriller, this is it.

  • ★★★½ review by YI JIAN on Letterboxd

    Goes from a mildly interesting, trivial buzzfeed-tier subject into shocking, full-blown crime thriller under minutes. This is a voluntary and brave fight against a form of evil so subtle and well-hidden the easiest thing for everyone to do is to just feign ignorance. Does wonderful things to your temper and paranoia, please watch it.
