Mondo Cane

Gualtiero Jacopetti's largely faked Italian shockumentary (1963) gave the world the pop hit “More” but little else, charting some of the more peculiar eating and courting habits around the world. The basic idea was put to brilliant use by Luis Buñuel in his acid documentary-cum-travelogue Las Hurdes (Land Without Bread) (1932), but Jacopetti probably didn't see it. Anyway, if you always wondered what was responsible for all those “Mondo . . .” exploitationers, here it is. 105 min.
