Cannibal Holocaust (1980, unrated) is problematic but still required viewing.
I love this film. Its a graphic and controversial Italian art house found footage film which has been widely banned and criticized. It’s undeniably problematic with its rampant racism, misogyny, animal violence etc. However, Cannibal Holocaust is honestly a fantastic jumping off point to discuss the real life horror of colonialism, imperialism, the “heart of darkness” in “civilized” man, racism/sexism, and sensationalism in media and the news cycle. This film provoked some of the best conversations and debates with my friends. What do you think of Cannibal Holocaust?
