Odd documentary short from Herzog
6 September 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"Pilgrimage" is essentially a series of shots of separate sets of pilgrims heading towards an undisclosed destination, set to music. I can sort of understand where Herzog is heading here (the quote displayed at the start of the film sort of makes things obvious), but it doesn't really seem to warrant a film, as even at 18 minutes long this feels a little stretched out and rather pointless. It is visually arresting, though, and it is an intimate portrait of something most of us don't really understand or connect with (even if we are always in a sense on a personal pilgrimage). It also isn't boring at all, although the music is a bit grating at times. All in all worth watching for Herzog enthusiasts, but a rather flat and bland film overall, with some wonderful and beautiful shots.

6/10
