further adds to the mystery
4 April 2017 | by framptonhollisSee all my reviews

"Tickled" was among my top films of last year, and had me gripped and startled like few other documentaries ever have and ever will. While it is a masterpiece of documentary filmmaking, it still ended with many questions left unsolved, which is why I was highly anticipating a follow up and hoped to see how this story would escalate in the future. "The Tickle King" is certainly a worthy, but brief, follow up to the first film, which begins quite mundanely and soon becomes more and more uncomfortable. This short documentary does not focus on the original mystery as much as it does the reactions the film received from the subjects it villainized. The film allows its opponents to speak, but also rebuts them in a mature and well done way. If you were a fan of the first film and are eager to see the case as it continues, this is certainly an essential piece to the puzzle. However, I do wish that the filmmakers waited a bit longer to release the film so they could gather more footage as the controversy progressed. If this film were to come out 1-2 years from now, there would certainly be a lot more interesting material.
