    Even Herzog loyalists will have to concede that this fact-based 2009 hostage drama is a serious dud.

    Extremely good movie.One of the most modern and brilliant story telling I saw in the last decade. Very very good actors (and what a great casting brilliant directing, excellent editing, beautiful work on the soundtrack and very strong story. Well, I totally understand that lots of people will not be able to understand this movie. Produced by David Lynch, directed by Werner Herzog. Man, if you like to walk in the zone, you'll get it and will not regret it. Full Review »
