It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...

The Dancing Chicken.

Stroszek (Herzog, 1976)

Bruno S. may be one of the all time most underappreciated actors. In Herzog's masterful Stroszek he gives a performance of such bizarre intensity and wit that it almost feels that he is less acting than just inhabiting the screen. Herzog's own talent with visual beauty, lyrically on display here is also utterly moving. The images are bold and last with you for some time. I doubt that the dancing chicken will leave my head for days. Sad, funny and moving without schmaltz or sentimentality, Herzog has hit upon something very true in this film.
