5.0 out of 5 stars Mondo Magic, February 28, 2000
This review is from: Mondo Cane 1 / Shockumentary [VHS] (VHS Tape)
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED-- This amazing video is a 'must-have!' I rented 'Mondo Cane' (aka Mondo Magic) from a local video store when I was 15 years old, and now, at 28, I still remember with vivid clarity, the exhilarating experience of viewing this profoundly shocking video. YOU WON'T FIND THIS AT BLOCKBUSTER OR HOLLYWOOD VIDEO! Watcher BEWARE, the scenes depict actual documentary-style footage--not a fictionalized account--of native people practicing traditional rituals which may severely conflict with your notion of 'acceptable Western cultural practices.' Hunting, eating, come-of-age initiation and explicit sexual rites, dramatic celebrations, shamanic religious ceremonies and even everyday life scenes around a small village people, provide a significantly shocking experience, while the material is dealt with quite sensitively, almost clinically. This video will broaden your understanding of the profound diversity of human life, sex, religion, and death experiences in cultures different than your own. Be prepared to see with an open mind and a pretty tough stomach, before watching this film. --Loco Bonobo
