Oblique and pure...,
This review is from: Heart Of Glass  [DVD] (DVD)
Heart of Glass moves toward a very ambiguous plain, though there are pointers towards this in the classic Enigma of Kaspar Hauser. This is one of Herzog's more obscure works and one like films such as Gummo, Koyaanisqatsi, Pandemonium or Eloge de l'amour that you are more likely to admire than to enjoy.
It has been wonderfully transferred to DVD and it is great to see an experimental work like this- hopefully Even Dwarfs Were Small, Wings of Hope, My Best Fiend and Little Dieter will follow. Heart of Glass is an interesting work, cinema for those who appreciate something that challenges; though be warned!- it is nowhere near works such as Aguire, Wrath of God, The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, Stroszek or Fitzcarraldo...
