One Response to 2016 – Salt and Fire

  1. From the mind of Werner Herzog comes this beautifully shot and surprising movie. Three scientists researching a volcano are taken hostage by Matt Riley (played by Michael Shannon) and Krauss (played by ASU professor and theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss).

    What unfolds is a film that only Herzog could deliver, with his unusual cadence of dialogue coupled with a strong cast, this movie not only challenges you to look beyond the obvious but also delivers some very wry comedic lines. The salt flat in Bolivia where this was was filmed is every bit as breathtaking as the rest of the film. The ending is quite handily stolen by Krauss who demonstrates his trademark humour and playfulness quite well in an unexpected format.
