DVD - Even Dwarf's Started Small
Werner Herzog has always been considered two things - a maverick, and a crazy lunatic. Once you know that, his whole body of work somehow makes a lot more sense. I don't know what to tell you about Even Dwarf's Started Small. I enjoyed it. It's crazy. It seems beyond real, as though it were shot as a documentary in some other dimension, instead of being a fictional film. It's an interesting study in malevolence and rebellion on the part of individuals who are being forced to live in an institutional setting, and how, often times, rebellion can get out of hand. That's about it, really. This is just one of those ones you have to check out for yourself.
