At first, it seemed like the world didn’t need a remake of Abel Ferrara’s 1992 cult crime film. Then, German madman Werner Herzog ( Aguirre, the Wrath of God; Fitzcarraldo; Nosferatu the Vampyre ) climbed on board to direct and brought Nic Cage with him. Cage gives his most appropriately over-the-top performance in a decade as a drug- and gambling-addicted detective in post-Katrina New Orleans investigating the killing of five Senegalese immigrants. Not so much a remake of the original as a rumination on the same pulpy, sleazy, funny, weirdly awesome territory.

Encounters at the End of the World “... Eh
Werner Herzog ( Grizzly Man ) 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. (Available in HD.)
