Werner Herzog the what
I couldn't disagree more, but in the context of the article it makes sense. Well, sort of.
As for Herzog, I have mixed feelings about his latest output. "Grizzly man" was amazing, but "Rescue dawn" felt surprisingly stale, even more so considering it's based on actual events and that Herzog himself told the same story much better in "Little Dieter needs to fly", in which he achieved the feat of transforming an actual, living person, into a creature Klaus Kinski would have been proud to play.
But considering that this remake could have been his cinematical grave and that instead I don't stop hearing good reviews, I'm starting to build some serious expectations here. The original is a masterpiece, and a film so unconfortable to watch I haven't set eyes on it since it was first released in VHS. And if anybody could remake it and make a good movie, well, that would be Herzog.
