Into the Inferno. 2016. USA. Directed by Werner Herzog. 104 min.
Filmmaker, globetrotter, and shaman Werner Herzog and volcanologist Clive Oppenheimer dare us to stare into the fiery abyss and not jump. So intoxicating are the tales they tell—of island rituals, volcano worship, and earthly forces beyond comprehension—that you may leave the theater wanting to abandon the mundane world of Western civilization. In the great tradition of his Encounters at the End of the World and Grizzly Man, Herzog invites us to abandon our comfort zones and embrace the rush of the natural world. Courtesy of Netflix.
