at Loch Ness (UK
directed by: Zak Penn
starring: Werner Herzog; Zak Penn; Kitana Baker
|Chris says: "INCIDENT AT LOCH NESS is a clever, often side-splitting little film. The less said about what it's about, the better. All you need to know is that its lead 'character' is the always intriguing Werner Herzog, and it breathes life into a certain tricky genre, revealing a surprising complexity where so many other attempts have fallen flat."|
|Diane says: "Those who say that LOCH NESS is
WAITING FOR GUFFMAN meets BLAIR
WITCH PROJECT are right on. Zak Penn's documocky of Hollywood's triumph over
director's independent vision also has a nice paean to 'Star Trek,' with its Scotty and Lt. Uhura. Herzog is great. In the 90 minutes, I was alternately bored by stuff that was trying to hard to be funny or was too broad (e.g., anything to do with the crypto-zoologist) and laughing uproariously. Hey, nobody told me that one of my faves, Jeff Goldblum, was in it. If they had taken Goldblum along on the crew of the Discovery IV,
disaster would have been averted. Natch, the closing 'Mod Squad' type shot of the Discovery crew also reminded me of Buckaroo Banzai's gang. You will really enjoy this at home on your tv. 3 cats
|Michael says: "There isn’t much you can say
about this film without ruining it for others, and I highly recommend you
go see it. Here’s the premise: A small film crew, working on a documentary
on the life of director Werner Herzog get more than they bargained for
while chronicling Herzog’s attempt to film a documentary on the Loch
Ness Monster. And that’s all I’m going to say about the film
"This highly entertaining and hilarious film is a multi-leveled film
that bears a repeated viewing. Herzog is a fascinating subject, and I
agree with Scot, surely a fascinating man to spend time with. 4 cats"
"But I totally want to have Werner Herzog over for dinner (we’ll serve yucca root) and I’m rethinking my whole concept of the Chlotrudis documentary I wanna do. 5 cats"
|Tom says: "Let me first start this by saying I was very
disappointed that this film
starred Warner Herzog, not baseball great Whitey Herzog.
Incident at Loch Ness is a 'mockumentary' that follows Warner Herzog and his film crew on a search behind the myth of the Lock Ness monster. Now, I don't think I've ever seen a movie by Herzog, nor know that much about him, but the movie was still very accessible to me. I grew up loving 'In Search Of...' and the ghost stories on the reality shows of the late 70s/early 80s like 'That's Incredible,' so INCIDENT really brought back those old memories.
