U.K., 2019, 89 min, Dir. Werner Herzog, Not Rated, English and German with English subtitles, Music Box Films
“An encomium to a lost friend. [Herzog] imbues the film with rich narration, unforgettable characters and National Geographic-worthy landscape shots all his own.” —Jason Newman, Rolling Stone
Werner Herzog turns the camera on himself and his decades-long friendship with the late travel writer Bruce Chatwin, a kindred spirit whose quest for ecstatic truth carried him to all corners of the globe. Herzog’s deeply personal portrait of Chatwin, illustrated with archival discoveries, film clips, and a mound of “brontosaurus skin,” encompasses their shared interest in aboriginal cultures, ancient rituals, and the mysteries stitching together life on earth.
