My Sons, my Sons, what have David Lynch & Werner Herzog done?
I, like many reviewing this film, are a BIG fan of David Lynch and Werner Herzog. I was greatly disappointed by this non-event of a film. Maybe it would have fared better as 1/2 hour television drama, but after an hour and 33 minutes, I walked away with an empty feeling. This movie never takes off nor goes anywhere. I'm saddened that two film geniuses got together and created this mediocre movie. The film looks good, the acting is competent, but what could have been a fascinating character study turns out to be an empty story. Lynch and Herzog always capture the attention of fans and critics, but this one slipped under the radar for good reason.
