The Naked Prey (1966, Colonel Wilde)
I was absolutely blown away by this film. I was reminded about another film which I really love, Quest for Fire, while watching it and I think I have come to the conclusion of why I love both films so much. The thing that they both share in common is that there is little to no dialogue and for the most part everything is told visually.
Meanwhile Quest for Fire was about...well... a quest for fire, The Naked Prey is just one man running away from an African tribe and trying to survive for 90 minutes. I found it to be always thrilling, intense, and at times just bad ass.
I really don't have much else to say. I liked it a lot and loved the execution of it all.
