Unbelievable believable
20 June 2002 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

If I didn't know that this is mockumentary, I would definitely believe in every word they said there!

Movie is shoot so clever and good (which is reasonable because authors were fine documentary moviemakers before they did this and BWP) that is totally believable and real unless you read end credits where you can see that entire thing is fake :)

It is my favourite mockumentary, next to Jackson's "Forgotten Silver" which is funny and, in most scenes pretty obviously fake while this one is totally realistic.

10/10
