It goes without saying that any film made by Werner Herzog deserves a look, especially his bizarre deadpan documentaries like Little Dieter Needs To Fly and The White Diamond, both of which played during the Herzog: [Non] Fiction Series this and last month at the Film Forum in New York, now sadly over. But still showing is Herzog's new doc Encounters at the End of the World. Encounters is about Antarctica and basically how that place is really really weird and kind of like outer space. Based on the trailer, we imagine there will be lots of shots of vaguely creepy underwater things scuttling around as well as rugged dudes with ice in their beards chipping holes in ice and then scuba diving into them. The film is playing through June 24th, so hit Film Forum up before then and you'll probably hear us in the back row being like, Duuuuuddeeee did you see that starfish? That was crazy! Seriously, did you see it? It's cool, you can tell us to be quiet.
