The Wild Blue Yonder (2005)

A British French German science fiction directed by Werner Herzog, starring Brad Dourif.
An alien living on earth bemoans the misfortune of his race and the journey of Earth astronauts to his dying planet.
This was mostly repurposed documentary footage that was edited into a story by narration and occasional scenes of the leading actor standing in a desolate location. With very little actual filming, this won awards at film festivals. The plot was threadbare and there were very few characters, none of which were developed well. The music was annoying and the documentary footage did not convince me that this is a narrative film. The only way that I could see anyone getting enjoyment out of watching this is under the influence of strong hallucinogenic drugs. There were lots of pretty shots of water. Overall, not good. I rate this bad.
