Join the discussion Adrian Curry over 4 years ago Starts out like CSI: San Diego, ends up looking like Ordet! Daniel Kasman over 4 years ago That’s the best pitch for a movie I’ve ever heard, Adrian! Christopher over 4 years ago wtf… House 0f Leaves over 4 years ago As I said in the forum—a Herzog film with a river and a jungle in it—I’m there, but the voiceover in the trailer made me want to tear out my pancreas a little. Daniel Kasman over 4 years ago “Oh my god, my glasses” Srikanth Srinivasan over 4 years ago Psychological thriller? By Herzog? That is what they must be calling SARCASM Adam Cook over 4 years ago The trailer does it’s best to cover up how great this movie looks. After 3 viewings of it, I have a hunch this is going to be in masterpiece territory. Daniel Kasman over 4 years ago Seconded. Pino over 4 years ago I hoped I had never heard this….Lynch …what are u doing…? Brandon Rome over 4 years ago Oh my. After seeing this trailer and the one for Bad Lt.: POCNO, I am starting to wonder what the heck Herzog is doing. This reminds me why I don’t like to watch previews. Bad. Marketing. Bad. Jordan H over 4 years ago A few interesting stills from the film Giovanna Morales Vargas over 4 years ago It doesn’t look interesting at all!!! Looks like one of those sophisticated and contemporary TV series, but never like a film, so weird though Herzog is an awesome filmmaker, so is David Lynch and even though he is producing this, it doesn’t show his level or probably it does but in a lower category, I won’t see this I don’t think I need. Boone over 4 years ago Suckas. NEVER trust a contemporary trailer. They are cut by idiotic trailer firms based on market research, executive whims and ouija readings. The Rescue Dawn trailer was an outrage, yet the actual film was a minor masterpiece. With these things you have to read between the lines— “lines” in this case meaning “awful editing choices.” Guy Downes about 4 years ago I saw this at TIFF09 and wasn’t all that impressed. Had great potential and real talented actors but never really gelled as a film. Herzog’s Q&A afterward was much better! Your opinion Please login to add a new comment.
