For his second feature, Academy Award winner Errol Morris (The Fog of War, The Thin Blue Line) originally set out to chronicle Vernon, FL, because it had the highest rate of a particular sort of insurance fraud than any other place in the country. Nothing of that original idea survives in the film itself. Instead, in this quirky indie documentary from IFC Films, Morris seems perfectly content letting the camera roll in front of the other eccentrics he found there, using his trademark approach of simply letting his subjects do the talking themselves. Many of them exhibit unusually close relationships to animals, including a turtle keeper, a worm farmer, and most memorably, an extremely enthusiastic turkey hunter.
