Movie Reviews

Herzog does Lynch
Jordan Hofer | Salem, Oregon United States | 09/20/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Herzog makes a Lynch film and the hybrid is bizarre. Not one of Herzog's finest films but still offers images unseen. Ostriches, flamingoes, guerilla filmmaking, and a midget. Utter madness."
Brilliant, hypnotic, unconventional, and tragically undersee
Matt the Knife | Los Angeles, City of the Dead | 09/20/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In 2009, Werner Herzog delivered a stunning one-two punch with "Port of Call New Orleans" and this movie. I would rank "My Son, My Son" right up there with "Aguirre" in the Herzog canon. If you're looking for standard conventional Hollywood product, avoid this one. If you're looking for something that will keep you fascinated, confused, and thrilled by its originality, see it ASAP. As a portrait of insanity, "My Son, My Son" throws Hollywood's standard treatment of the subject in the wastebasket: You're never given an "explanation" for the main character Brad's descent into insanity, and he doesn't come off as a merely normal guy with some problems (let's face it, Russell Crowe in "A Beautiful Mind" is the most RATIONAL paranoid schizophrenic in the history of mankind!). I see and hear mentally ill individuals at the bus stop nearly every day, and their words make just as little sense as Brad's. This is a powerful, compelling, and sadly overlooked masterwork."
Stunningly amazing

"One of the years best titles.
Werner Herzog puts Michael Shannon and Willem Dafoe under your skin, like an itch hard to scratch.

The extra material is great as well, with interviews with Werner and behind the scenes footage.
There is also a nice little short film narrated by Mr. herzog himself.

This film will keep you thinking for days"
