Grizzly Man



Watching Grizzly Man is shocking. It is a visual description of what Herzog previously has described in his "Minnesota Declaration":
10. The moon is dull. Mother Nature doesn´t call, doesn´t speak to you, although a glacier eventually farts. And don´t you listen to the Song of Life.

11. We ought to be grateful that the Universe out there knows no smile.

12. Life in the oceans must be sheer hell. A vast, merciless hell of permanent and immediate danger. So much of a hell that during evolution some species - including man - crawled, fled onto some small continents of solid land, where the Lessons of Darkness continue.

- "Minnesota Declaration" can be found at Werner Herzog's website.
- What reminded me of Herzog's "declaration" was CK's comment on the movie.

  1. I really want to see this. Is it true that herzog didn't show the most gruesome part of what happens? Anyway, hope you had a nice vacation.

  2. Great quotes. I really enjoyed Herzog's commentary throughout the film.

    I've been reading some Rushdie recently, and for whatever reason, made me think of your blog. I need to check back here more often--you have good stuff when you post.

    Peace,
