A Worthy Entry

The first fiction film in nearly 20 years from my favorite director of all time, Werner Herzog. I don't have to say, but I had really high expectations for this film, and it almost lives up to them. Zishe Breitbart, the jewish strong man, is a very interesting role. Played by a real life strong man, Jouko Ahola does a fine job of playing the simplistic Zishe, not much of a stretch, but it was done well enough not to distract from the rest of the film. The real star is Tim Roth, especially his clairvoyant scenes, they are absolutely beautiful. There are many wonderful themes going on between the two main actors, about how Erik-Jan Hanussen is more like Zishe than he cares to admit, and how Zishe's real strength isn't in his massive arms, but is of a more mystical nature, much like Hanussen's perceived abilities. Stunning and poetic, Invincible is a worthy entry into the Herzog filmography.
