All Critics (1)

For a tale of single-minded devotion, [The Hole Story] shines in those few occasions when Alex [Karpovsky]'s nerve is overtaken by booze, love or despair -- a lot like life.

Audience Reviews for The Hole Story


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.
