A must-watch for cinephiles. It shows the power of film to free your mind and impulse your creativity. So inspiring
This was a great documentary about a very dysfunctional family. As deprived as they were, I envy their passion and devotion to their hobby.
An interesting insight into a world of isolation and escapism
A pretty interesting documentary, but I felt it could have explored the implications of its subject matter a bit more
It's fascinating for a while, but becomes weird and frustrating. I wound up feeling like a voyeur.
Massively overhyped, they’re an interesting group of people, but what’s the point. It has nothing to say
A bit of annoying topic, and the documentary was slow pace
Such an interesting topic that was not enhanced by documentary treatment.
Very interesting story, but the documentary doesn't give it the space it deserves. Worth a watch.
Very dark and kind of confusing at times. These guys have great taste in movies though

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.
A coffin-dragging gunslinger and a prostitute become embroiled in a bitter feud between a merciless masked clan and a band of Mexican revolutionaries.

A documentary about the legendary series of nationally televised debates in 1968 between two great public intellectuals, the liberal Gore Vidal and the conservative William F. Buckley Jr. Intended as commentary on the issues of their day, these vitriolic and explosive encounters came to define the modern era of public discourse in the media, marking the big bang moment of our contemporary media landscape when spectacle trumped content and argument replaced substance. Best of Enemies delves into the entangled biographies of these two great thinkers, and luxuriates in the language and the theater of their debates, begging the question, "What has television done to the way we discuss politics in our democracy today?"
Two pals embark on a road trip full of funny pranks that pull real people into mayhem.
