Blonde Almond Goes Through His Werner Herzog Collection
I had an awkward moment this afternoon when a package showed up at my house for something I didn't remember ordering. Upon opening up the box, I found myself staring at this beautiful thing:
I suppose it's a moment that happens in any obsessive's life, when you realize you made an impulse preorder online months back and almost completely forgot about it until the day it showed up on your doorstep. I'm thinking I must have wanted to reward myself after moving from a contract to a permanent work position sometime in late March or early April. Yeah, that must have been it....
Anyway, I thought maybe this would be a decent opportunity for a new thread. There are 16 films in this collection:EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL
LAND OF SILENCE AND DARKNESS
AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD
THE ENIGMA OF KASPAR HAUSER
HEART OF GLASS
NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE
BALLAD OF LITTLE SOLDIER
WHERE THE GREEN ANTS DREAM
LESSONS OF DARKNESS
LITTLE DIETER NEEDS TO FLY
MY BEST FIEND
Of those 16, I've only seen 5 of them, and even with those it's been several years. So I wanted to work my way through them all, offering up some extended thoughts on each as I went along. I'll probably start up with the first film in the next few days here, and then work my way down the list at my own pace. Not sure how high the interest level would be on here for some of these, but I've been looking for something to get me a little more active with writing again, and thought this was as good an opportunity as any.
