Werner and Waldo: Herzog Searches for Man and Meaning

May 3, 2010

A man unstuck from place and time, he travels the world on foot.His only lifeline to his friends and family: a litany of dreary postcards sent from arbitrary locations, the world over. His postcards do nothing to convey the humanity, the madness of Waldo’s adventures.

For that, we must go find him.

Waldo has never been so interesting or profound as he is through the eyes (and accent) of German film maker Werner Herzog.

Does this man even want to be found? Or, in searching for Waldo, did we really find ourselves?

If Herzog narrated the travels and travails of my life perhaps they’d sound as profound and interesting.
