Fitzcardboardaldo (2012) + Making Of

Still from Robin Frohardt's Fitzcardboardaldo.

So you’re gonna spoof Werner Herzog.  You’re gonna take Fitzcarraldo.  You’re gonna do it in cardboard.

But that’s not enough.  Of course it’s not.  Because if you’re gonna spoof Herzog, you need to go all out, and that’s just not far out enough.  So you’re also gonna spoof Burden of Dreams, the documentary about making Fitzcarraldo.  And you’re going to have disillusioned, empty, sad-eyed Cardboard Herzog huddle listlessly, wrapped in his cardboard arms, bemoaning a cardboard land so violent and full of misery that even the cardboard birds are merely screeching in pain.

Oh yeah.  That’s about right.  Thanks, Robin Frohardt.
