Audience Reviews for Keep the River on Your Right: A Modern Cannibal Tale

  • Jan 12, 2012
    Tobias Schneebaum certainly engaged in some interesting research on indigenous tribes and their views on homosexuality and marriage but this film was centred on his return to the areas of his initial study..which makes it slightly dull. Perhaps the focus could have been placed on the research rather than a nostalgic trip.
