Maria Garcia
Film Journal International

Herzog illustrates through both Dorrington and the Rastafarian the wonder of simply being human.

The film is one small story and how it can be presented and interpreted to mean so much, giving significance to a more introspective definition of triumph.

Herzog loves to document humanity's perpetual struggle with nature, and in The White Diamond, the jungle -- sometimes makes sophisticated human technology laughably clumsy.

Although The White Diamond is entire of itself, it earns its place among the other treasures and curiosities in Herzog's work.

When we finally see the ship sailing through majestic cloud formations over the breathtaking Amazon canopy, the name seems absolutely fitting -- for a gem of an aircraft and a jewel of a movie.

Herzog's eye for the weird sometimes makes the docu feel strained, but engaging characters imbue the pic with depth and emotional appeal.

A minor but often visually stunning meditation on nature and man's desire to conquer it.

The film is rather aimless, if not pointless, but you cannot take your eyes off it for one second.

In The White Diamond, man and nature barely rub against each other, and it's this friction that makes for the film's most astounding images.

Werner Herzog's documentary suggests that while the German filmmaker has mellowed a bit with age, he is still fascinated by the danger and romance of the natural world.

Werner Herzog may lack heroes, nowadays, who seem adequate to his fierce capacity for wonder. When occasion demands, however, he can still turn the world upside down.

Any day in which I'm able to step into the gaze path of extreme, globe-trotting seeker-of-otherworldliness Werner Herzog -- like a matinee dreamer transfixed in a projector's beam -- is a day well lived.

Magnificent shots of waterfalls and other natural phenomena abound, but it's far too late in the history of nature photography to expect anyone to gawk at them.
