With modern man’s devotion to preserving the past, many of us can claim to have seen something spectacularly old. Something so significant to history, we had no choice but to experience it entirely, to become immersed in the movement of time. This dipping into the past is a momentous adventure, and one you feel inclined to share with those around you, with your family, with anyone. And this, surely, is the impetus for Werner Herzog‘s documentary, Cave of Forgotten Dreams. Herzog desperately wants to share with us the transcendence of his experience, and while he surely takes his audience on a breathtaking journey, it can, on occasion, come at the expense of his film’s harmony.
