“Fishing With John” Ep. 4 – Maine with Willem Dafoe

Can I have some cheese crackers with a side of deadpan humor?

Musician John Lurie and actor Willem Dafoe go ice fishing in Maine, with deadly consequences, in this ’90s mockumentary.

Part of a brief six-episode TV show which came, barely rippled the water, but has endured, lurking in the backwaters of the internet, it’s blissfully, surreally unique.

Things quickly go from bad to worse, as extreme cold, poor shelter, and a serious lack of food ruin the lives of two celebrities who probably should have just stayed home.

Things don’t have to be real to be real entertaining.
