Lake Mungo

Lake Mungo

Happy that Second Sight released a limited Edition Blu-ray of this film because I heard great things from the Pure Cinema Podcast. This fauxumentary is quite effective in capturing the polished, docufiction, Errol Morris style of non-fiction filmmaking. The interviews are primarily shot on beautiful 16mm which really elevates what could have been a redundant found-footage movie.
