Cave of Forgotten Dreams examines the elaborate Paleolithic cave paintings recently discovered in the Ardèche Valley. It is an inspiring exploration of the origins of creativity and human curiosity.
Into the Abyss, however, explores the converse of those impulses: murder and destruction. It features two death row inmates who have received the ultimate sentence for a gruesome crime. In a very detached way, Herzog muses on the nature of death and vengeance.
DMT: The Spirit Molecule (2010) Director: Mitch Schultz
DMT: The Spirit Molecule is a fascinating meditation on the mystery of human consciousness. It specifically focuses on the research of Dr Rick Strassman an American psychiatrist who undertook groundbreaking research into the effects of the psychedelic drug DMT on the human brain. The result of his experiments were incredible and raised profound questions about our perception of time, space and indeed the entire Universe.
