Oscar-nominated documentary in which Werner Herzog, accompanied only by his cameraman, travels to Antarctica and talks with scientists about their work, seeking insight into their unique community and offering another meditation on the grandeur of nature.
Mid-list Herzog, but still a stimulating, strange experience. And that tragically perverse penguin is the most memorable movie animal of the year.
