Interesting and disturbing. A must see documentary.

This documentary is as good as it is unsettling. Compelling as it is disturbing.
Super dark documentary about abuse. It’s a tough watch but well made.
Excellent biographical mystery documentary, haunting

Shot in documentary style from the perspective of an almost alien observer, the film is an exploration of the ravaged oil fields of post-Gulf War Kuwait. An effective companion to his earlier film Fata Morgana, Herzog again perceives the desert as a landscape with its own voice, as he glides over seas of oil, geyser-like infernos, monstrous smoke plumes and ashen roadways. With musical accompaniment by Wagner, Prokofiev and Pärt to boot, he observes the soot-covered creatures allured by the blaze.
