Walking to Werner (2006)
Critic Reviews for Walking to Werner
[Subject] Phillips is a lot better at walking than talking, and his musings seem especially insipid intercut with audio clips of Herzog's sage observations.
The real interest in the film is not the journey or even Linas Phillips, but the people he meets on the way.
Even the most ardent Herzog admirer may want to hail this fledgling documentarian a cab and call it a day.
Phillips's trip begins as an attention-grabbing show of devotion but transforms into a many-sided experiment in empathy.
The high-strung antics of Linas Phillips, who films his hike from Seattle to Los Angeles to meet Werner Herzog, may strike some as a noble spiritual undertaking, but others will find it an exercise in indulgent self-absorption.
The documentary Walking to Werner is a deeply self-reflexive work, perpetually at risk of disappearing into its own iris.
