  1. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    A gorgeous bit of aimless cinema that uses Mayan creation theory to explain, abstractly, the circumstances of the surrounding landscape; definitely gave me flashes of Koyaanisqatsi.

  2. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    3.5 Although the use of music is senseless.

  3. grotescsetorg's rating of the film Fata Morgana

  4. Pierre.F's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    Une expérience cinématographique absolument unique et entêtante.

  5. BUSTER TIERNEY's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    3,8/5 Bien au-delà du documentaire, c'est un vrai parcours philosophico-poétique que nous livre Herzog ! Aussi stimulant qu'un panda intéressanté par Tim Burton !

  6. Ludovic72's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    Le phénomène optique de Fata Morgana est une combinaison de mirages, due à la superposition de plusieurs couches d'air chaud et d'air froid. Nous en voyons quelques-unes, mais Herzog s'attache surtout à superposer des registres hétérogènes d'images, de textes et de musiques, illustrant l'étrangeté d'une humanité pleine de contradictions. De belles images, mais l'exercice tourne parfois à l'abstrait répétitif... (3,5)

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    Comme le titre du film l'indique fort judicieusement, avec un texte souvent en contradiction, voire en opposition avec l'image, une œuvre illusoire et factice, sans fond et sans fin, comme la pernicieuse nature humaine désertée par les divinités... www.cinefiches.com

  9. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    Usually I appreciate Herzog's works. But this film is too (pseudo-)amateurish in many respects. Some good visual sequences and the irony of the third part don't compensate for the strange and somewhat incompatible choice of pre-existing music (Herzog has done much better in "Lessons of Darkness"), the poor sound quality, the awfull first narrators and the badly improvised sequences.

  10. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    My absolute favourite Herzog film. Colonialism's fever dream. The apogee of transcendent materialism! Such characters you meet; such sights. Pilgrims. Tableaux vivants. Buffalo as flat as the drawings on the walls in 'Cave of Forgotten Dreams'.

  11. Maribou's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    I nearly nodded off. Just not that visually interesting

  12. mimivulturul's rating of the film Fata Morgana

  13. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Fata Morgana

  14. Graf von Zahl's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    View from a car window with beautiful music in the background and Popol Vuh. The fact that all these components are connected in rather random way was bit annoying at the beginning, but after a while it gets hypnotic. At one point it was like Fitzcarraldo wandering though desert on camel's back.

  15. dentinhos's rating of the film Fata Morgana

  16. Theories Of Anxiety's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    I turned off subtitles and movie became so much better.

  17. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    The kind of thing that makes you want to go write poetry. What is it about? I don't know, something about man and nature or something, go ask Herzog.

  18. ronny's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    as slow and visual as "2001: A Space Odyssey"—and nearly half the length—but not as captivating. feels like an early, unpolished prototype to the Koyaanisqatsi family of films. unless you're a Herzog fanatic or Mayan mythologist, i suggest you skip this.

  19. Feng Ling's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    Life is strange, Herzog is stranger.

  20. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    Amazing visual trip. This would be badass in a theatre!!!

  21. Dooooooor's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    Strangely affecting. Cohen is dope.

  22. Matt Price's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    What is a movie? Moving images, sometimes with sound. Fata Morgana qualifies as a movie, just barely though. That's about all that I feel qualified to say about it, even though I just watched it.

  23. Marco Della Motta's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    Startling and spellbinding imagery from start to finish. One of Herzog's best, elusive, and most intriguing documentaries.

  24. David R Williams's rating of the film Fata Morgana

    There is a strange beauty to be found in desolation and decay.
