| Herzog's a most gracious host giving us "Into the Wild Blue Yonder"
What makes Herzog mind numbingly talented is his eye for absolute heart stopping beauty and shocking humor all in a shot. For this I never tire of watching Herzog's films over and over again.

In Into the Wild Blue Yonder he again encompasses the genius and silliness of humankind and nature. He allows your eyes to wander long all around in his shots, gracefully to take their time in childlike wonder. It's a slow food movie. He trusts that you have a sense to enjoy all the irony, possible melancholy, waltz- like fluid motion, transfixing colors, the plain goofiness without feeling you must be a "film snob. A delight for the eyes to be sure!

Choosing Brad Dourif for his punctuated passionate alien was perfect! As an actor he is always fascinating to behold. In "Into the wild... " as much so as the underwater scenery.

Herzog will always be my favorite director for his open invitation to every viewer to take what they might from his films.
