The filmmaker heads into the Minnesota wilderness to get to the bottom of a mysterious hole in the middle of an othewise frozen lake. This topic is to be featured as the pilot in filmmaker's TV show on quirky local lore. It sounds like a total snooze, I know, but this is a great doc, with the right combination of borderline insanity, the subject's last chance for professional success, narcissism, Minnesotan deadpan, and luck.
A cerebral Blair Witch Project sure to interest indie film buffs and psychology majors. It might have been pretty spiffy metahumor if the cameraman, rather than Karpovsky himself, was credited as the film's writer/director.
