Encounters at the End of the World

Posted by ben on 14 Aug 2008 | Tagged as: announcements, ice, video/film

I saw Werner Herzog’s new movie, Encounters at the End of the World, last night. I’ll just say briefly that this is one of the funniest movies I’ve caught in a while, despite the fact that it’s a documentary about Antarctica. Herzog displays his usual keen eye, sense of levity with weighty subjects, and managed to pull off another great soundtrack (Henry Kaiser plays much of the music, and also did the underwater cinematography).

For those of you in San Anto, today is the last day it shows at the Bijou, so try to check it if you can.

Fiction, Funerals & Arctic Circles

russian ice hotel design

Upon investigating a recommendation from the bookworms over at Boldtype, I decided to read Let the by California writer and Believer co-editor Vendela Vida. This short book claws through the cavernous roots of a father’s death, a mother’s abandonment and a brittle change of heart. While the main character, Clarissa, searches for emotional terra firma across the bright cold unfamiliar territory of Lapland, she discovers brutal family secrets and the kindness of bucolic, reindeer herders. The locations indulge your imagination, particularly the puzzling phenomena of a luxurious Ice Hotel. The narration leads you along a dark path, but Vida tenders a very American, luminous denouement. Highly recommended for a self-absorbed, rainy afternoon investment.
