I have discovered this unbelievable web site. It actually finds what you type in and is faster that typing/posting the question on this site. It's called Google. Do you feel lucky?

Wow good up. Google. I'll try it. Actually I am on my phone so it is actually easier for me to ask the question on this thread while I'm on it n keep it movin rather than open the browser and search on google. Besides that it really ain't that serious. I noticed ur lil smiley face at the end of ur post so I won't take too much offense

It's a feature length documentary about ancient cave drawings in France.

The doccumentary about the oldest known human created cave drawings sounds intense for sure.

All 5 people in the world that seen it at the theater seem to like it very much.

The (many more than 5) people at the showing I attended did indeed like it very much. It ran for quite a few weeks here.

Thanks for the info. I was not aware that this film existed. It looks interesting to me and it's nice to have content available thats not a fairy tale or owls in googligolly.

No one has mentioned that it is a Werner Herzog film.

It means that it is a film by Werner Herzog, the famous German director of movies such as Aguirre: The Wratch of God and (more recently) Grizzly Man.

I recognised the name then realised it was the Director who made the movie about Timothy Treadwell who "thought" he had an affinity with wild Grisly Bears and ended up getting himself and his Girl freind killed by one of them!

Interesting movie but the less said about well meaning but ultimately foolish man Treadwell, the better!

Well, the point of the movie was that Treadwell was terribly naive and brought about his own death. Anyone who follows in his footsteps should also expect to get eaten by a bear. It's a cautionary tale.

I appreciate that!

Another movie with a similar message worth watching is Into the Wild!

Eaten by a bear? I dunno, we all die sometime and at least it was not a run of the mill boring way to go.... I think I'd be OK with it for myself.

Seems a bit of a painful way to go, don't you think?
post #21 of 48
Sure, but it has got to be better than how I see most people go. With a slow painful decline, where the medical treatments are as bad as the thing that is killing them, only to eventually die from what ever it was anyways.

Just additional thoughts on it is all. Very few people end up die'n truly peacefully and without pain. Or at least I don't know of many.

My uncle went out about as pleasantly as you can go. In the house that he bought for his retirement, one morning he got up really early, sat down in his favorite chair on the porch to watch the sun rise, and that was it. Just drifted away.

I think I'd prefer that to being ripped apart by a bear. YMMV.

We've gotten a bit off topic here, I'm afraid.
post #23 of 48
To bring it back on topic? I'll bank most of those that actually did these cave drawings / paintings went out real rough when it was their time.

PS: I think your uncle is the exception these days sadly enough. I wish only the best for you personally indeed. I'd be fine with the bear attack for myself.

Not for me! I would rather go in a drug induced coma thanks.

i hope ya'll using projectors instead of TVs for this 3d content
post #27 of 48
What puzzles me is how are a bunch of 2D cave drawings a good subject for 3D? Maybe they have lots of shots looking into the hole of the cave or bats flying out? Also wouldn't it be pretty dark which also does not lend itself to good 3D. Anyone seen the movie in 3D to help us justify the 3D premium for getting this otherwise interesting sounding documentary in Blu-ray 3D?

.....Not everyone can afford projectors...or the real estate required to have one.

Herzog uses the 3D to emphasize how the artwork was drawn to utilize the curvature of the walls. He argues that this was an early method of providing a sense of motion to the drawings. As you move in the cave and change your angle of viewing, the animals seem to move. Combined with the flickering light and shadow from torches, this was the caveman equivalent of cinema.

The photography and 3D aren't perfect on a technical level. Due to confined space in the caves, Herzog wasn't able to bring in professional camera or lighting equipment. He had to use consumer-grade cameras and hand-held lights. However, the effect he achieves is one of the more artistic uses of 3D to date.

Thanks! That was a most appreciated explanation and I'm glad to hear that they even allowed hand held lighting. As I understand it if you go visit the caves all you get to see is some type of mock-up as they don't even want to light the caves for the public due to concerns about degrading the drawings.
