Werner Herzog Is a Very Convincing Sad Plastic Bag

I finally sat down with the latest edition of the McSweeney's DVD magazine Wolphin. It's stellar as always, and the film I can't get out of my head is Ramin Bahrani's Plastic Bag, featuring the voice of filmmaker Werner Herzog and starring a very lonely plastic bag blowing across desolate American landscapes. It's kind of funny at first, but soon Herzog's deadpan portrayal of the sad plastic bag will have you in something of a trance--or at least a deep funk.
