Lessons of Darkness
The cinematography of this movie is a constant presence of beauty and terror, heart-throbbing and breathtaking, still always far from pathos. Inspiring and touching throughout its full length, Werner Herzog demonstrates the power of pictures, the essence of film or photography as a medium separate from logical understanding.
There is no storyline to this motion picture since it defines itself as such, – not as a visual derogative of verbal expression but as a free form of expression displayed in sensuous, demanding and touching pictures. This movie is a must for any photographer or person involved in visual arts, I have seldom encountered such a sincere and demanding work of cinematography.
