The Wild Blue Yonder back to product details

Makes THE BIG BLUE look good!

I'm awfully glad that THE WILD BLUE YONDER was not the first Werner Herzog movie I've seen. Otherwise, I might never venture near another. I've encountered documentaries and mockumentaries, but this is my first schlockumentary: a piddling waste of time so lame-brained that it boggles the mind on two counts: A supposedly world-class filmmaker would bother making this? Any remotely intelligent or sophisticated person might want to watch it? Using Brad Douriff as an "alien" (yes, this makes sense, but Herzog has given him such paltry dialog!) and offering very random thoughts about colonization, space travel, shopping malls and name-dropping of other, better movies, Herzog ties it all together with non-stop music combining the ethereal with the near-eastern and the religious. An almost total misfire, "The Wild Blue Yonder" should have you running for the hills.
