01.24.06Alamo Downtown Talking to Wiley after the show about how I first didn't like this until it grew in my mind into something else he agreed and said people usually have to change gears when they watch Herzog movies. I think that's definitely right. His movies are not fast and filled with action and explosions. You have to kind of slide into them like you slide into sleep, and only then are they effective. This one though, I found pretty creepy. I loved seeing it on the big screen and couldn't help but remember some memorable pronunciations from Herzog's commentary for the DVD of this movie (especially at the end when he talks about all the monkies and says "monkies" like 30 times) but this time I wholeheartedly no-doubt-about-it liked it unlike the first time I saw it. The print was kinda rough though... but oh well, at least I got a chance to see it Theatrically. The first scene with all the people coming down the mountain still thrills me. Herzog is so crazy to let all those people actually do that.
