Lessons of Darkness

Lektionen in Finsternis

Directed by Werner Herzog
Germany, 1992
Documentary, War


Perhaps be the greatest, most beautiful anti-war film ever made, and yet, there are no substantial images of war making, just post-war horror and aftermath. With elongated elegies of aerial shots, it transcends current affairs and factual programming. This is the universal war.
