Fictionalized Narration
28 March 2000 | by (South Carolina) – See all my reviews

Weather or not this documentary offers a realistic take on Asia is up to the viewer, but it's not very likely. I have lived and/or worked on 4 different continents and thought I had seen everything from modernism to 3rd world life. However much of what you see in Shocking Asia 2, much like it's predecessor Shocking Asia 1 seems less shocking if you take out what appears to be fictionalized narration. Still there are some images that should be avoided if you are squeamish.

Some of the topics that are discussed includes a sacred monkey shrine, public cremation, eastern sex shops, faith healers and a host of other spiritual activities. Some of the segments seem to openly use sexploitation to help sell the video. If you are truly interested in Asian history and culture might I suggest the public library.
