"It's something I need to see again and I think I'll appreciate it more. I'm not sure how to call it - documentary? art film? maybe both - sometimes delightful, sometimes tiresome, depending on the moment, and probably the viewer's (my) state of mind (and weariness: something one should not view if tired at the end of the day, or in bed - you're warned).

"Now this is what I am talking about. Mesmerizing and thrilling movie tells us the creation story. I find this to be Herzog in his essence. Hopeless desert imagery with dirt poor children playing amongst cow carcasses while Herzog has just declared that this is paradise. I really liked the quote in near the end which says that even though this is merciless land, it has strange beauty to it. To Herzog Mother Nature is cold and unforgiving cunt, yet very charismatic piece of work."
"I'm not really the target audience for these kind of films. I'm not movie theorist (suprise!) or intellectual philosopher. I'm a humble dude and the number of my braincells drops almost every weekend. Optical phenomenons are interesting but this movie is dry as the Sahara desert. Leonard Cohen saved this for me. "
