Just saw Werner Herzog’s “Wild Blue Yonder” and while I will admit to being bored through some of the film, the story, cinematography and superb acting of Brad Dourif make it a definite win overall. This morning on the train I found myself daydreaming about some of the very scenes I found boring while watching it.
Last year I saw a performance of Ellie Ga’s “The Fortunetellers” which is a travel essay of sorts told with the use of an overhead projector, photos, ship logs, clippings and audio recordings from her 5 month expedition on a sailboat in the arctic ocean. It’s one hell of a story and one hell of a way to tell it too! Can’t wait to see it on Feb. 16 at the Kitchen.
