Film #48: CAVE OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS
Cave of Forgotten Dreams
3 out of 5 stars
CAVE is a fascinating documentary about the discovery of ancient cave paintings in the Chauvet Caves in southern France. Director Werner Herzog does what he does best here both writing, directing, and starring in the film. The pace is kind of slow and the film is overall too long, but it somehow adds to all the richness. Beautiful score by Ernst Reijseger. Recommended… but one can’t help but feel the whole thing could’ve been trimmed by a half hour or so.
