Werner Herzog United States, 2016

smndvdcl's rating of the film Into the Inferno

An extension to 'La Soufrière' rather than a definitive doc on volcanoes (complete with Herzog's daredevil filmmaking nous). The geographical context lends weight to the grandiose and haunting majesty of nature's wildest landmarks. It is a curiosity watch rather than one which challenges our notions of civilisation. For profound accounts of indigenous culture, see Fricke's 'Baraka' and 'Samsara'.
