It's not that the movie doesn't tell Yavorsky's story well -- I think Herzog did as well as anyone could; it's just that I think I 'got' some of the nuance a bit better after reading some of the old news articles out there. Also interesting, I thought, is that the screenwriter, Herbert Golder, actually interviewed Yavorsky a few times. (Yavorsky was found innocent by reason of insanity, probably the right call, and served many years in a mental health facility).
David Lynch produced the movie, but this is not a "Lynch" movie, as he never set foot on the set nor contributed to the script. This time, the midget and pink flamingos belong wholly to Werner Herzog.
The acting and production values are great, as one would expect. All in all, a very good film, and highly recommended.
He plays a crazy man that kills his mother. This movie dose not drag that is why I loved seeing this. Michael Shannon is an intense actor.
It's so odd, in a great way. You will absolutely hate it or undyingly love it. If you're the kind of person who can only handle average, mundane, predictable plots and dialogue, this ain't for you. If you love strangeness, offbeatness, and flamingos (They're not flamingos! They're my eagles in drag!) then purchase this gem RIGHT NOW.
