Persistence solves a mystery..........
8 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you are fascinated by the unexplained, then "The Hole Story" should be of interest. It does resemble a Werner Herzog mockumentary such as "Where the Green Ants Dream", "Incident at Loch Ness", etc. There really isn't enough material here for a feature movie, and parts feel stretched. I actually enjoyed the "Special Feature" "Pilot Episode" more than the full length film. The pilot has most of the movie's chuckles and charm without the padding. Definitely creative, definitely well done, with a very satisfying conclusion. I look forward to Mr. Karpovsky's second film, as he certainly is off to a very good start. - MERK
