Brutes & SavagesDVD
One of the last entries in the "mondo documentary" genre of the '60s and '70s was this "filmed-on-location" odyssey through the untamed reaches of Africa and South America. Director/host Arthur Davis puts his and his crew's lives on the line (or so he says) to bring you such sights as a young African tribesman running across a herd of crocodiles; a South American village's "Turtle Wedding Ceremony" (which the turtle doesn't survive); Indian brain surgery; lots of animal-on-animal violence; llamamating; and much more not for the squeamish! This uncut version includes footage not shown in U.S. theaters; 107 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono; diary excerpts; theatrical trailer.
