CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS (2011) 5 star

One of the finest documentaries I've ever seen. Herzog has moved me to tears yet again. The profound spirituality and level of depth is staggering. It also happens to be the best use of 3-D that I've ever seen. However, Herzog's film doesn't rely on any gimmicks, instead we get enormous emotional weight and ancient history. It's as if Herzog felt the need to literally place us three dimensionally in this environment. The score is among the best in recent years. This film documents the birth of art and somehow unites all artists throughout time. 40,000 years in the making.
