Grizzly Man

Sometimes Wernher Herzog himself is more entertaining than his films. Whatever the results, he's man with a vision.

Just watched "Grizzly Man" which is good, but also has some of the heavy-handed awkwardness that was the problem with "Little Dieter Learns to Fly".

On the dvd the is an extra feature of WH in a recording studio, coaching a collection of musicians as they score the film with beautiful Popul Vuh-esque music. Richard Thompson is an adept guitarist, whose picking goes well with cello and WH's role, which seems to be to direct the spirit of the music.

The feature is nice but it is long.
