A Prophet or L'enfant

When I saw A Prophet, an old guy sitting two seats from me got up and angrily stormed in and out of the theater like 3 times during especially violent parts.

was he wearing steel-toed boots so it would make a loud stamping sound when he stormed out

winged migration is a stunner

rewatched and it's actually really bad. awful soundtrack, very distracting. robert wyatt appears at the beginning and the end, not his best work unfortunately. some cool footage here and there but really cheesy "story episodes" some of which are obviously staged. we were spoiled by planet earth a few years later. generally really dislike this type of nature documentary now. straight-up unedited flight footage of birds for 90 minutes would be so much better than this random-ass hodgepodge of highlight reels tied together by the most basic interpretation of what a migration "means." herzog got it right in his penguin documentary by focusing on the mystery.

hours of raw nature footage completely ruined by anthropomorphic storyboarding and the most misguided, chintzy music cues you can imagine courtesy of one bruno coulais
