This film shows the disaster of the Kuwaitian oil fields in flames, with few interviews and no explanatory narration. Hell itself is presented in such beautiful sights and music that one has to be fascinated by it.

I'm sorry but as a documentary filmmaker Herzog did impress me more than what he does as a narrative filmmaker. This is a very effective documentary that should be shown to everyone in this day and age.
First of all I really enjoyed hearing the side of the story not only of the victims, but also of people who have done it. It is almost impossible to not feel sorry for these people. All of them present the heartbreaking effects of texting while driving. I will be absolutely surprised if this does not get nominated for the "Best short Documentary" at the Academy Awards.
So if you are up to date in society's technology. Watch this movie. The message is as clear as day but unlike something like a Michael Moore documentary, this time it is genuine.
