Storyline

Nominally a documentary, this film combines a number of unrelated sequences (both real and staged) -- including a South Pacific "cargo cult", the ritual slaughter of a bull, tribal dances and rituals, and a visit to an ornate pet cemetery -- all focused on the lurid, sensational, and eccentric. Written by Michael C. Berch <mcb@postmodern.com>

A group of voyeuristic documentarians follow the world's eccentric cultures
2 January 2003 | by (Selbyside - St. Paul, MN USA) – See all my reviews

After viewing this I must say I was left mesmerized to a degree. You really don't know what is going on the other side of the globe. Some people claim that these events aren't real, and the images are just for a psuedo-documentary, but you be the judge. Me personally, I believe that those things are going on. Even though this film shows its age, it is still a very strong piece of work and will not be easily forgotten.
