Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Werner Herzog Stati Uniti, 2010
The 3D is gorgeous. I even found it enhanced by the low-quality video from Herzog’s recce. As has often been remarked, the film focusses on flat line drawings, but drawn on the contours of curving walls, so a lot of the movie is looking at fairly subtle spacial gradations — a nice, tasteful use of the medium. But Herzog also had a guy demonstrating cro-magnon weaponry, who sticks a spear right in our faces. Subtlety is most effective when contrasted with its opposite. Ask Ken Russell.

A striking work of art, framing another that is wholly extraordinary.

…A documentary so concrete yet seemingly so imaginary—two qualities Herzog combines like a lucid dreamer whether he’s working in fiction or non-fiction.

“Cave of Forgotten Dreams’’ is Herzog in a state of blissful awe.

The paintings are extraordinary and the 3-D cinematography invites the viewer to get lost in every brushstroke. This is one of the few films to use the format for intellectual, even philosophical ends: the added depth parallels the deeper understanding of humanity that the paintings inspire.

Without lobbing a single virtual projectile at the audiences’ faces, Cave of Forgotten Dreams nevertheless presents the best use of 3D I have yet to see in a movie—so good, in fact, that its camerawork may demand a new classification beyond traditional “cinematography.”  Cave of Forgotten Dreams announces that we have entered the age of “Holography.”

The result is a journey to prehistory that’s simultaneously wondrous and tedious, profound and completely nuts — which is to say, quintessential Herzog.

Even the best book of reproductions—like Cave Art, by Chauvet research team leader Jean Clottes, who appears several times in the film—can’t convey a sense of the cave’s contours, or the spatial relations between one painting and the next.

Whatever the reason, it’s a blast to be inside the cave, to see these images, within 3-D grabbing reach.

Leave it to Werner Herzog to find a use for 3D technology that isn’t part of some gimmick to hoodwink kids of all ages. Herzog’s new doc, Cave of Forgotten Dreams, peddles his usual ideas about chaos and entropy, but 3D gives his navel-gazing optical depth.
