A very good movie

Following 'Grizzly man', this is the 2nd documentary directed by Werner Herzorg that I have the pleasure to watch and, once again, I was really impressed. Herzorg has a very peculiar style since his narration is omnipresent and it is an acquired taste. He didn't annoy me but I can imagine that it can be bothering. Furthermore, there are some really awesome shots here and only for that, it is worth... read more

Werner Herzog takes us on an expedition to the barrens of a frozen Antarctica. Here, the inhabitants seem to be sort of lost but found. They have spent their years traveling the globe and they all happened to end up in—or were strangely attracted to—the same place: McMurdo. The people Herzog interviewed all seem to have positive outlooks and very interesting perspectives on life and living, an... read more

Description: The idiosyncratic German filmmaker Werner Herzog heads off to Antarctica to make a documentary and assures us at that he is not about to make "another film about penguins." But fate has its way with him (more about that later). At the outset, Herzog is stunned by the "seemingly endless void" of Antarctica with its ... (more)

"17.8. Encounters at the End of the World on kivaa tunnelmointia todella komeiden maisemien ja Herzogin rauhoittavan äänen äärellä. Ei minulla oikeastaan muuta sanottavaa tästä ole. Soundtrackilla kuultava nunnakuoron ulvominen oli ehkä vähän rasittavaa, koska se oli niin paljon puhetta kovemmalla eikä blu-rayssä ollut minkäänlaisia tekstejä."

"05.03. Blu-ray, 1st viewing DIRECTED BY Werner Herzog A lovely documentary on Antarctica. Herzog covers a lot of interesting peculiarities of the continent and the research performed there: from deranged penguins to seal sounds and underwater photography. Herzog makes it hilarious as he occasionally addresses his interviewees with strange questions and narrates in his trademark cynical style. The mini-rants about yoga classes and pogo stick jumpers on the Antarctic were really funny. The mome"

"Filmmaker Werner Herzog travels to Antarctica to capture its landscape's rarely seen beauty on film. I couldn't help but feel that this documentary dragged on a little - however, I did appreciate the scenic shots, scientific effort shown, seal song & bizarre little penguin!"

"It is comforting to know that even in this world that we know so well, there is still so much we don't know and so much to be in awe of. Herzog reminds us of the connection we have to all of it--and whether it matters or not that we are a way for the cosmos to know itself, there is great power in that idea and perhaps enough to save humanity and our Earth. Most Memorable Scene: The long tunnel that leads to the precise coordinates of the south pole, and the frozen sturgeon that lies there, ensh"

""We are the witness of the universe becoming conscious of its gloriousness." :: Herzog Review :: Filled with quirky people and strange environments, right where Herzog does his best. I love the ideas in this film, but I love the images more because I will always remember them."

yord's 30 Day Movie Meme List (30 movies items)

"Favorite documentary Merely noting that this was the only direct competition for Stalker in the "Movie I wish more people would see" category should put Herzog's Encounters at the End of the World on everyone's "to watch" list. It brings moments of pure visual awe mixed in with quirky and deep stories by genuinely nice people, all with Herzog's ponderous and playful narration tying them together. Not a traditional documentary by any means, this film will get you seeing connections to the univer"

“Werner Herzog takes us on an expedition to the barrens of a frozen Antarctica. Here, the inhabitants seem to be sort of lost but found. They have spent their years traveling the globe and they all happened to end up in—or were strangely attracted to—the same place: McMurdo. The people Herzog interviewed all seem to have positive outlooks and very interesting perspectives on life and living, and I thought it was strange to see a city full of people like this. Herzog then takes us away from the city and shows even more strangeness, not only from other people, but the wildlife and environment itself. Absolutely beautiful images from under the ice, strange inorganic mating calls from seals, an alternate universe inhabited by neutrinos, seemingly mentally ill penguins, and a frozen sturgeon” read more

A very good movie

“Following 'Grizzly man', this is the 2nd documentary directed by Werner Herzorg that I have the pleasure to watch and, once again, I was really impressed. Herzorg has a very peculiar style since his narration is omnipresent and it is an acquired taste. He didn't annoy me but I can imagine that it can be bothering. Furthermore, there are some really awesome shots here and only for that, it is worth to check this one out. The landscape is pretty awesome but the 'natives' give some unexpected interesting insights and you can feel that Herzorg is really enjoying meeting some fellow adventurers. Indeed, during his whole career, he has been pushing the boundaries and there, he meets some rather weird and adventurous characters who decided to check the end of the world. My only critic would be t” read more

Monthly Movie Journal: April 2011 (44 movies items)

" Director Werner Herzog sets out for Antarctica to um, to uh...well, I'm not sure exactly. But he captures some pretty cool video and audio footage along the way, and talks with some rather interesting characters. At its best this documentary is oddly mesmerizing and spiritually stirring in a vague sense. Other times the project seems unfocused and gets bogged down by the director's eccentric, sometimes down-right obtrusive ego that comes through in much of the narration."
