Werner Herzog turns the camera on himself and his decades-long friendship with the late author Bruce Chatwin, a kindred spirit whose quest for ecstatic truth carried him to all corners of the globe, encompassing their shared interest in the mysteries stitching together life on earth.

Our take

Werner Herzog’s touching documentary portrait of the late, globetrotting writer Bruce Chatwin is the legendary director’s most personal film yet. Traveling to striking sites from Chatwin’s work, Herzog crafts a sublime tribute to a great artist and friend, and their shared quest for ecstatic truth.
