Cannibal Holocaust (1980)

Shocking, brutal and depressing. This film juxtaposes cruelty from "civilized" journalists with that of a primitive Amazonian tribe and asks us which is worse? We are constantly asked "do you really want to watch this". Are we no worse than the sensation seeking film crew?

Does the film need animal cruelty and sexual violence? I'm still in two minds. Will I watch it again? Yes. but not for a while.

The ultimate found footage film.
