  1. ejonline's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    I'm not sure that this film needed the Herzogian narration. The images themselves are so profoundly moving, and the cinematography so astounding, that the voice over didn't add much for me. Perhaps if there were a bit less of it the images would have more time and space. I can imagine myself being there, entranced, while other people were talking: "Oh, please just be quiet - there's no need for words right now."

  3. mlstrx's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    the postscript is amazing. nothing is real, nothing is certain.

  4. Laura G.'s rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    The scene where they are listening to the silence of the cave. Who were they? What were their dreams? Their hopes? Their families?

  5. Django's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    This is a solid four star documentary beautifully and creatively realizing its subject. I give it the rare fifth star because of how it equally illuminates its film maker as Herzog, the story teller, relates and interacts with fellow story tellers across ten thousand years.

  6. aurkihnowe's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    Herzog and a skeleton crew travel to the Chauvet Caves in France (Wikipedia it) to take us on an anthropological/archeological wonder tour through the oldest known existing artworks contained within...the paintings are magnificent, and there are even some primitive weapons, sculptures, and instruments to gawk at...I wasn't in the right frame of mind while watching this, so ill have to go back and check it out again,

  9. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    Another Herzog odyssey, which haven’t gotten boring, and don’t look like they will as long as Herzog himself narrates. This may be (from the ones I’ve seen) the best of his grand-questioning-of-life/awe-of-the-world documentaries from the 21st century.

  11. SiIencio's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    The mystical and intellectual fascination that such archaeological human footprints generate in us is conveyed by Herzog in this rare opportunity to somehow have a peek at our most remote and primitive cultural past. Herzog methodically explores the cave looking for the soul of those ancient humans who now communicate with us. The limitations of a film like this to channel a full stimulating experience are also felt.

  13. Diderot's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    An alluring documentary about how little we know of ourselves as a species and how much of historical knowledge itself is just wild speculation.

  14. fearraigh's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    A bit more conventional than Herzog's recent documentaries, this is nonetheless a very watchable film that does the wondrous caves of Chauvet justice.

  15. Kadjavsi's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    .5 i'm not sure what to make out of the narrator's overly dramatic john malkovichian voice haha nice stuff tho

  16. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    Herzog's approach is interesting because he tries to explore the spritual dimension of the cave and its paintings, using a lot of cross-culture references. Sometimes this aspect is over-emphasized by Ernst Reijseger's music (that I didn't like very much). But the breathtaking way Herzog brings the beautiful paintings to life with changing light and 3D cameras makes up for this detail.

  20. mciszczon's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    The film flows veeery slowly, which some may find irritating. One of my favorites, very mystical at times.

  21. 絵莉's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    As beautiful and soul opening on the second watch as the first.

  22. Marina C.'s rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    A magnificent documentary with exquisite lighting and ambience given by the soundtrack, a long and detailed look at the cave and a great insight at not just the Chauvet Cave but other paleolithic discoveries. The beautiful symbiosis of the woman's body and the bison was the peak for me, along with the simulation of movement in some of the paintings, that give it a new intensity and meaning

  23. gustborges's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    oh boy, beautiful movie. at the beginning thought it could be a bit too discovery channel-like, but herzog manages to push further and take more and more from these caves. amazing soundtrack also.

  24. Marinos Koutsomichalis's rating of the film Cave of Forgotten Dreams

    The neural synapses within Herzoq's brain must be totally fucked up.. In a documentary about cave-painting he talks with archaeologists about juggling, shows irrelevant scenes with drone-camera shots, and eventually concludes with a nuclear factory and mutated albino crocodiles.. fuck yeah!!
