“... Eh, I’ve seen snowier.”

Encounters at the End of the World

Werner Herzog communes with unforgiving Mother Nature some more, traveling to harsh Antarctica to capture otherworldly landscapes of frozen earth and sea. As usual, he's interested in raw nature as well as the bizarre characters drawn to it--in this case, scientists studying ice, penguins and other curious South Pole phenomena. It's a distracted, scattershot portrait to be sure (would you expect any less from Herzog?), but it features some indelible images.
