Incident at Loch Ness (2004)

Director: Zak Penn. Cast: Werner Herzog, Zak Penn, Kitana Baker, Gabriel Beristain. 94 min. Rated PG-13. UK. Comedy/Horror.

What is fact? What "creates" truth? Werner Herzog is out to explore the collective truth (what people have decided to believe) about the Loch Ness Monster, but simultaneously his producer is making a movie about him. So is this merely a Herzog project with a con man as producer? Or is the whole film a set-up, with Herzog himself in on the con? Since I was hoping the movie had lingered on that question till the end, the fact that the answer becomes too obvious mid-movie, is disappointing. But the film is still a fun, memorable and even chuckle-worthy ride.
