I feel the same about Rescue Dawn as I did when I first saw it four months back. It is a very engrossing, involving film – but it lacks the artistry I expect from Werner Herzog – especially considering the subject matter. It’s not like Herzog is selling out – I mean his last movie before Rescue Dawn to hit the theaters was The Wild Blue Yonder — hardly an easily accessible picture. Still, I dunno. . .the fact remains this: Rescue Dawn was one of the handful of good, original movies to come out in mainstream cinemas this year — and one of Hezog’s least memorable films.
