I had gathered that this film started off as one thing and ended up as another. But I wasn’t prepared for the direction it ended up taking.
Investigative journalist David Farrier was familiar to me from the series Short Poppies, which had been on Netflix. Tickled begins with Farrier following up a story on ‘Competitive Endurance Tickling’ and very quickly becomes a tale of legal threats, litigation and homophobia.
But that’s not all. And I’m not going to give it away, but if you thought the above was weird, well this takes it to a whole new level!
Personally, I hate being tickled, so that makes it even more odd for me.
