Blurring the Line in Documentary

by Zak Penn

Zak Penn’s directorial debut, Incident at Loch Ness, has a very clever film within a film within a film and it’s all built around filmmaker Werner Herzog. While funny at times, there is a surprising degree of sophistication and truth that runs through the whole thing. Herzog’s reputation precedes him and he has fun with the myths and stories that surround him as he goes on an expedition to find the Loch Ness monster. Even if you haven’t seen a film by Herzog, it’s worth seeing, and if you have seen Herzog’s work or heard any stories, it’s a bit more fun.
