03.05.06Netflix a wonderfully dreamlike and meditative documentary, no surprise from Herzog. Something about him and the jungle, man... he always takes the most fascinating look at it. This is kind of a missing link film for me because when I saw Grizzly Man after The Wild Blue Yonder I really couldn't see how the same guy made both films. In this one you start to hear some of that Sardinian music creep in but at the same time the interview subject is fascinating and slightly goof. Not to say that I boil down Grizzly Man to a slightly goofy interview subject, this was connective tissue in more than those terms, but still... After watching this I think the main reason why Wild Blue Yonder didn't gel with me was because of Herzog's use of file footage. I found that the music didn't bother me here because the photography was so beautiful and captivating and hypnotic in all the ways that grainy messy NASA and dive footage is not.

Really good movie.
