(At least, I shan't watch any of the Matrix sequels . . . .)

The Dark KNight Rises is no where near Matrix Sequels bad...or at least that's my opinion. And I liked TDKR, not as much as Begins or TDK though.

This one is for you, Karl..

Bit of a Herzog-marathon last night, completing the set .. a great & rewarding experience going thru significant portions of Herzog's filmography made available here .. 


Lessons of Darkness: This film shows the disaster of the Kuwaitian oil fields in flames. In contrast to the common documentary film there are no comments and few interviews. What must have been the hell itself is presented to the viewer in such beautiful sights and beautiful music that one has to be fascinated by it. The German title translates 'lessons in darkness'.

Little Dieter Needs to Fly: In 1966, Dieter Dengler was shot down over Laos, captured, and, down to 85 pounds, escaped. Barefoot, surviving monsoons, leeches, and machete-wielding villagers, he was rescued. Now, near 60, living on Mt. Tamalpais, Dengler tells his story: a German lad surviving Allied bombings in World War II, postwar poverty, apprenticed to a smith, beaten regularly. At 18, he emigrates and peels potatoes in the U.S. Air Force. He leaves for California and college, then enlistment in the Navy to learn to fly. A quiet man of sorrows tells his story: war, capture, harrowing conditions, escape, and miraculous rescue. Where did he find the strength; how does he now live with his memories?

My Best Fiend: In the 1950s, a teenage Werner Herzog was transfixed by a film performance of the young Klaus Kinski. Years later, they would share an apartment where, in an unabated, 48 hour fit of rage, Kinski completely destroyed the bathroom. From this chaos, a violent, love-hate, profoundly creative partnership was born. In 1972, Herzog cast Kinski in Aguirre, Wrath of God. Four more films would follow. In this personal documentary, Herzog traces the often violent ups and downs of their relationship, revisiting the various locations of their films and talking to the people they worked with.

Probably at least some of you know this series: it seems similar to the Archer animation on FX.

I'm not familiar with Ebert's writings, but the legendary Finnish film historian and director Peter von Bagh's death was just announced today.
