INTO THE ABYSS: A TALE OF DEATH, A TALE OF LIFE
Herzog | 2011 | US | 106m
*Herzog in-person
“DOC NYC Opening Night Gala”
7:30 at NYU

“What is perhaps most notable, and commendable, about Into the Abyss is how much it eschews Herzog’s (still enjoyable) Romantic grandiloquence and schticky absurdism in favour of a judiciously measured but unavoidably affecting emotional appeal. It’s remarkable, and chastening, to realize here Herzog’s extraordinary, humanistic skill at allowing people to reveal themselves on camera. I cannot honestly think of a more genuinely empathetic, less self-important film about such a subject. A bracing reminder that this perpetual jester, like all great comedians, is forever deadly serious.” – Andrew Tracy, Cinema Scope [Read More]
