An experience not to be missed, this latest thinkpiece from legendary auteur Werner Herzog, executive produced by the equally mindbending David Lynch, deconstructs the mystifying events that led a man to slay his own mother with a samurai sword—based on a true story of course. A film that features the Oscar-nominated quartet of Willem Dafoe, Michael Shannon, Chloe Sevigny and Brad Dourif, not to mention ostriches, a mariachi band, and a pair of flamingos named MacDougal and MacNamara, its swirling chaos and mesmerizing mise en scene make for an unforgettable, utterly unique, and undeniably Herzog-ian cinematic feat.
