Burden of Dreams (1982)

Les Blank's Burden of Dreams, about the making of Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo, is, astoundingly, better than the thing that inspired it. Whereas Herzog's (very long) movie is more ponderous and plodding, Blank's movie gets the insanity back into the story. It begins as the troubled production loses its original stars, Jason Robards and Mick Jagger, and begins reshooting with Klaus Kinski, who had worked with Herzog on the great Aguirre, the Wrath of God. But the kicker is the scene in which Fitzcarraldo — who wishes to build an opera house in the jungle — must drag his ship over a hill to continue his journey. Herzog, in a fit of artistic pique, decided to actually film the ship being dragged over the hill. The concept turns into chaos as Blank's camera looks on. Better still are the occasional interviews with Herzog, who, as ever, is a great speaker and storyteller, and he almost justifies his incredible choices. read more...

    The Kill Team (2019)

    One thing that can be learned from stories about war — especially the wars of the past fifty years — is that the situations are so awful, the camaraderie of soldiers becomes more important than anything else. read more...

    Lumumba (2000)

    Sometimes the magic of movies sweeps you up in an emotional frenzy, tickling your synapses, bringing joy or fear or sorrow, and sometimes they offer a good ol' fashioned learning experience. I sat down to Lumumba not knowing a thing about African politics circa the early 60s, and here was this movie just dying to explain it all to me. read more...

      The Hurt Locker (2009)

      I've been dragged to most of the recent Iraq war movies, and some of them have been interesting and informative, but they all have one thing in common: a somber, self-important, condescending attitude about the horrors and futility of war. The problem is that I already know all this going in. What I want to see is some explanation. If war is so horrible, why does everyone keep making war movies? Why on earth should we watch them? Certainly it's not to change anyone's mind, because these movies generally preach to the converted. But finally, here comes Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker, and it does something that all the others fail to do. It considers the dangerous idea that, indeed, war can be fun. read more...
