This documentary comes from Wellspring Media and explores some of the countless ways different cultures have modified their bodies through the ages. Spanning several centuries, the program looks at such ancient customs as piercing, tattooing, and scarification, as well as such modern practices as plastic surgery. Released in 2000, Body Art was directed by Kevin Bachar. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A documentary with scintillating content about how societies around the world use their bodies as an art form. One African tribe even elongates their skulls, which looks chic, but I'm not sure what it does for their brains."
‑ Brandon Judell, Entertainment Asylum
"Just an old-fashioned freakshow."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
