    ★★★

    Not Herzog's best, but very engrossing.

    Distressing is the word I'd use to describe this movie. Starts off strong; beautiful skyline and then a terrifying and pissed off Klaus Kinski. 

    Kinski is good, as is everyone else, but his character is a bit one note. Luckily the film is short.

    Great use of slow motion throughout,

    A film that really takes in not just the characters, but the locations in a very studied way without forgetting the human heart of it's story.

    More films like this Netflix.

    ★★★★½

    I was struck by how similar Bresson and Hitchcock were in filmmaking style. It's all precise visual details and storytelling through non-verbal means (especially editing). The film hits hard but Bresson already found his perfect protagonist in a donkey.
