(4/100) - The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner (1974) dir. Werner Herzog
We watched this German language film after our first documentary film lecture of this semester. A rather short film at only 45 minutes long, it is still certainly worth a watch. Herzog, the director, called it “one of my most important films.” I rather enjoyed the film, by the end I really found myself rooting for ski jumper Walter Steiner. Don’t watch if you don’t like seeing lots of skiing crashes though! A good film, inspiring. Would definitely recommend it!
