Very funny mockumentary
29 August 2002 | by naxashSee all my reviews

This is a very funny mockumentary about a Swiss artist named Urs Vogelaug who went to the US and became a legend...Sheriff Nolan Sharpless (Fred Ward) is convinced, that Vogelaug was killed by a Mickey and Mallory style couple. In order to prove his theory, he's willing to end his career. But unlike boxers, legends always come back...
