Storyline

Inspired by shock-documentaries like Mondo Cane, this film looks at the wilder side of life in America. Starting off with the bloodier side of the American car culture by showing a series of crashes at race events, the film then goes on to lesser-known sexual practices. Included among these is a porno movie award show, a nude beauty contest, a sex therapy session, and a detailed explanation of where dildos come from. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

An entertaining mondo shockumentary!
23 September 2002 | by (Kaarina, Finland) – See all my reviews

One of the more entertaining mondos, This Is America is well worth a look. Focusing on the bizarre activities of the American people it "documents" phenomena from the Indianapolis 500 to satanism and from peculiar sexual practices to drive in religion.

Although some of the documentary material does not seem that real, every minute is entertaining. Groovy seventies atmosphere is a big plus.

Released on video in Finland in the early eighties.
