Possibly the hardest film to rank yet, so I'm copping out with a 50. It's pretty terrible throughout most of it (if you accept the filmmakers' motivations at face value I guess it's more like Salo than just cheap exploitation... but working with Papa Doc complicates that narrative), HOWEVER when it shifts to that modern day Miami beach at the end it becomes flat out amazing. That section if you could classify it as its own thing would be one of the greatest short films in existence.

The moment where it goes to slow motion with sad music while a woman is raped, but immediately zooms right in on her bare breasts kind of puts the busted moral compass of the Mondo movement into relief. What a great score, though.

I have now viewed both versions of this film, either way you're looking at a non-stop orgy of boobies and mayhem. I spent the entire time watching this movie looking like this: :/, THE THEME SONG IS THE BEST THING IN THE WORLD. You'll probably end up loving it because they play different versions of it over and over throughout . This is the BEST WORST MOVIE. The ending is something else.

A very difficult film to review. It's brutal and way over the top: at times it seems to make keen and poignant observations about slavery's brutal history, at others the camera leers and makes you feel really dirty. It's a very well crafted film, with swooping cameras, intense and dynamic action sequences, and pretty good editing. It's worth seeing, if you can stomach it, though I can't promise that you'll like it.
