Encounters At The End Of The World on UK DVD!
Werner Herzog's magnificent, quirky documentary is a wondrously droll look at the disparate inhabitants of Antarctica and the landscape they live in. Whether human or animal, Herzog manages to ring out unique insights into their lives, and focus on the details that others miss. Comical, intriguing and melancholy, the director's mesmeric voice-over is a joy, lending an other worldliness to stunning underwater photography and icy landscapes. As is to be expected, Herzog insures there's an unusual perspective on whatever subject he turns the camera towards, making for a unique and constantly surprising film that never fails to delight. It's worth watching purely for a hysterical, sad and wondrous scene with a lone penguin, separated from his group and on a relentless and doomed journey across the wilderness which perfectly encapsulates the film's idiosyncratic appeal.
