Go to this link and check out the trailer....
A very bizarre artist, creating a very different documentary about Antarctica!
I've only seen the trailer so far!

Very cool, thanks; I'll have to look out for the video release as I can't imagine it will come to my local theatre.

Looks interesting. Herzog's commentary drives me nuts, though.

"To me, they were like priests preparing for mass." :blink:

Also, what's up with the underwater camera work? I mean, I understand the shaky camera thing as a chosen style, but it just wasn't necessary there.

Yeah, he's a total whacked out artist, but what about the sounds made by the animals?

Hey, what happened with Wetpixel the re-vamp here? All funky for a none webby guy like me!

All that was missing was Klaus Kinski I guess

Whaddya want? He's Bavarian german.
I think his cameraman is Henry Kaiser... who happens to be a musician masquerading as a producer and u/w cameraman. I don't think the shakey camerawork was always intentional :)
Actually I quite like Herzog's work. He's a great auteur and he appreciates good work :D :)

So am I - especially the documentaries. I really liked Grizzly Man and Little Dieter Needs to Fly.

And speaking of documentaries, I saw one a couple of weeks ago that I really liked, Deep Water, about the first solo around the world yacht race:

Yeah Drew, he's got a rather interesting eye for light! However his earlier work was just too controversial and whacky, he should have been locked up for it, never mind becoming celebrated as a so called artist! All that stuff he was doing in the Amazon was too insane for my liking!
What you say?

Well when a convicted pedophile gets an oscar for directing and gets support calls to forgive and forget, you sorta know the world is a pretty screwed up place.
