No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA: Crazy World; Mondo Insanity

Language: English (dubbed)
Runtime: 01:40:12

Plot – Spoilers:
The 2nd part in the series begins with a dark, comical jab at British censorship and continues with a lot of coverage of violence vs animals. Rather than this being a pet fascination of the filmmakers, it’s more likely a representation of reality.

After a while, you don’t care anymore whether there is real footage in between the fictional depictions of cultural practices and events (like the burning monk reenactment). What remains though, is that the events are so bizarre and funnily presented, you will most likely be entertained.

The Monk being burned alive, and then his body was still twitching after he was dead really stuck to me for a bit. What was your favourite scene?

This documentary was shockingly disgusting, sick, sexist, racist and I fucking LOVED it. I was watching it with one eye closed.

A shockingly & strange documentary! Very controversial! I felt like I went back in the past with this film. It gave me a glimpse of what life was like 58 years ago. It was pretty ‘effedup’ as it is today. Thanks EUM.

Great documentary, very entertaining. Thank you for posting it. The lesson I take from it is that every human being on this planet is a barbarian. We just think we’re civilized. We are not.
