The German film director Werner Herzog sets out to the Scottish Highlands to make a documentary, “Enigma of Loch Ness”, exploding the myth of the Loch Ness Monster. Meanwhile, another documentary film crew is making a film about Werner Herzog, and we see the production of “Enigma” from their point of view. Shooting on a rented boat, tensions begin to rise as director Herzog and his producer, Zak Penn, find themselves at cross-purposes on the black surface of Loch Ness. Things get very edgy when the film crew starts seeing shapes in the murky water. —IMDb
One of the funniest films I've ever seen. Werner Herzog pokes fun at himself and his own films frequently in this brilliant mockumentary. It is always great when a director can do self-parody instead of becoming a parody of themselves due to too much fame. Herzog has to be the humblest of filmmakers. Any fan of his should enjoy this one.
Quite silly but at the same time quite entertaining for any Herzog fans out there. You can't help but smile at the fact that Herzog totally rolls with how ridiculous his personality and mythology have really become. I'm glad he just signs up for a project like this that most other equally serious artists would simply shun out of pure pretension.
