Western • PG • 2011 • 1 hr 44 min
A slow burn of a Western, where the focus is subtly on the women the entire time. The minimal narrative lets the acting shine.
A raw, elemental, hyper-realistic, but extremely subdued Western, eschewing genre tropes in favor of grim authenticity and great character.
A very slow moving western that works its way into your skin.
a little marvel of minimalism. Simple, slow, beautiful.
Bleak and slow but well worth it. A film about mistrust in an absolute form. Doesn’t tell you too much, and let’s you draw the conclusion.
The first time I saw it, I couldn’t get past how boring it was. It is slow, dry, dull. But it drills into you, and I’m still thinking abt it
Brutally slow. An interesting film, no doubt- its pacing works wonders for setting tone, but at points it feels like time was wasted.
The acting is great but the story is really slow and boring.
Average western with some good actors. However, a squeaky wheel sound effect plays for the entire runtime, it’s insanely annoying
watched it for class. nice

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.
