Nepotism at Loch Ness
Over the weekend I rented Incident at Loch Ness, written / produced / directed by and starring my cousin, Zak Penn. Without giving too much away, it's a movie about a documentary about the making of a documentary about the Loch Ness Monster. The trailer does very little to convey the tone of the film, but it's basically a mockumentary inspired by the Michael Vick Powerade commercial that combined home-video footage with cutting-edge visual effects. The first half hour is a bit slow, but once it kicks in, it's extremely clever and well-executed. It's especially fun for me to watch Zak play an asshole version of himself (and see Kitana Baker, the brunette from the infamous Miller Light "Catfight" ad, get some big-screen work). But even for those of you not related to me, I recommend it.
