Is the most bizarre and verging on disturbing thing I have actually ever seen...
TIMMY THE FOX - IF THAT HAT IS IN THE DEN, I'LL FUCKING EXPLODE.
TIMMY THE FOOOOOOX!
HE IS MY FAVOURITE, MY OLD FRIEND.
but i'm sure gay people have problems too
it's pretty unsettling, espeically the end. I was so relieved that they didn't play the tapes of you-know-what.
I saw a documentary about Herzog, the director of the film recently. The man's nuts.
that would have just finished it off. unsettling yet very good documentary though.
Full of valuable lessons. Like "don't hang with bears".
Bizarre Director, Bizarre everything. My favourite character was Mr Chocolate. Hi mr chocolate!
How to feel when watching it. Obviously, no-one wants to see any human being injured or hurt. But I was ultimately left feeling he got what he deserved - dont be trying to be 'friendly' with wild animals. He invaded their space and through his own stupidity/naivity got what was coming to him. A bizarre thing to watch.
I enjoyed it so much. I was glad the general tone wasn't "look at this mentalist, he is mental" nor was it "this man loved the bears, poor man, he was a saint". I've come to expect that kind of uni-directional documentary making. Probably from watching so much Channel 4.
Did anyone else think he looked like the Amish guy from the movie Kingpin????????????????????
check the link!
It was more a study of a fascinating personality than a polemic tale, and it had this astonishing power. Certainly the best film I've seen this year.
All his documentaries are worth watching.
And what about the soundtrack to that film!
The documentary on the making of the soundtrack is well worth a watch too!
Has anyone seen any other Herzog films that they would recommend? Those box sets are on sale at the moment. Little Dieter Needs To Fly is cool but the remake of it with real actors 'Rescue Dawn' was a bit unnecessary.
also that encounters and the end of he world documentary idk ive never been able to sit through nosferatu
I'd say that's the one to go for first. My Best Fiend, the documentary about their work together is so good. I love the part where Herzog visits the apartment that he shared with Kinski. He tells the stunned couple that are living there that Klaus had locked himself in the bathroom for days in a total rage. When the bathroom door was opened everything in there was smashed into such tiny pieces it would've been possible to seive it through a tennis racquet.
Their books, Herzog on Herzog and Kinski Uncut are brilliant, though KU is out of print and stupidly expensive now.
Reccommend more herzog eh? I wanna see that one where they pull the boat over the mountain and the one with the midgets.
"Dont be so moody"
