Storyline

Meet Robert (Bob) Fischer - and then wish you never had. This exposé follows an American (con) artist on his forest fire tour of Melbourne. Bob, a colourfully misanthropic nobody, manages to fool everyone within earshot - artists, gallery owners, art dealers and sponsors-scorching the poor suckers in the process. The unravelling disaster is expertly captured by director Maciej Wszelaki's omnipresent and frequently daring and intrusive lens. Written by Anonymous

The funniest documentary ever made.
19 August 2001 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Nova cinema in Melbourne and I knew nothing about the film, just that it had won a lot of awards. It was hard to believe that it was a documentary, it was more like a hilarious romp with a devastatingly naughty ugly American. The camera work is brilliant and the editing unrelenting. Life is stranger and funnier than fiction.
