Fascinated by forbidden rituals and ceremonies, world explorer Arthur Davis takes a crew with hidden cameras to Africa and South America to secretly record the beauty and horror of the "law of the jungle". BRUTES AND SAVAGES is the filmed document of his death-defying adventures. Shocking, brutal and repulsive, this film mixes bizarre authentic footage with incredibly exploitive (and often hilarious) "re-enactments" of his findings. Animal sacrifices, bizarre tribal ceremonies, mating rituals and even brain surgery. Written by
Come for the llama porn, stay for the croc attack.
Probably the lamest "mondo" travelogue ever made, "Brutes and Savages" is a laughable and cynical attempt at a documentary. "Explorer" Davis (dressed in an amazing salmon-colored safari outfit) heads to "Africa" (or its nearest North American equivalent) to film a Sudanese tribe. Where this tribe obtains it's endless supply of grease-based face paint isn't explained. The visit culminates in the simply jaw-dropping "croc attack" on a tribesman undergoing a manhood initiation. Replete with obvious and laughable continuity errors and rubber animals/body parts, you won't believe your eyes when you see it. The South American parts are rather dull, save the animal butchery (I had a hard time with the turtle slaughter). Smiling and laughing slum dwellers are called sullen and withdrawn who are wearing colorful clothes to show off for the cameras. I nodded off a couple of times, but the photography is nice, and the whole thing ends with llamas mating and simulated bestiality. "Killing For Culture" summed this one up nicely: pitiful.
