The Wild Eye (1967)
"Mondo Cane" co-director Paolo Cavara turns the camera back on himself and his "shockumentary" colleagues with this biting satire. Philippe Leroy plays a filmmaker who excels at staging bizarre vignettes and atrocities--from stranding his crew in the desert to getting a Buddhist monk to set himself on fire--and passing them off as reality, until a trip to war-torn Vietnam takes a deadly turn. Delia Boccardo, Gabriele Tinti also star. 91 min. Soundtrack: English (dubbed); trailers. Dubbed in English.
