"Documentary" Film Of The Day: Incident At Loch Ness...

I actually watched this movie for the second time the other night. If you like movies about making movies, "Incident At Loch Ness" will appeal to you. In the film, a documentary crew follows one of my favorite directors, Werner Herzog, famous for such epic movies as "Fitzcarraldo", "Aguirre: Wrath Of God", and "Grizzly Man", as he sets out to make a documentary about the legend of the Loch Ness Monster. During the course of making the film, we learn that producer Zak Penn has a very different vision for the film than Herzog. I'm not going to give too much away because this is the type of film that people should form their own opinions about. If you've liked my other recommendations, add this one to your list. It's available on Netflix.

I thought I was the only person on earth to have seen this. (I think you may be the only one to have seen it twice.)

I liked documentary Mein Liebster Fiend (My Best Fiend) about the making of Fitzcaraldo too.

Seems I like documentaries about making Werner Herzog films more than I like Werner Herzog films.

TLWDL- If you like movies about Werner Herzog making movies, there is also "Burden Of Dreams". It is excellent.
