Audience Reviews for The White Diamond (Diamante Blanco)

    I still have yet to see the entire thing beginning to end, because this film is my sleepytime film - in that, I watch pieces of it really late at night when I can't get to sleep. Within 10 minutes of watching this I'm passed out. I don't know why, I think it's because of Herzog's magnificent voice. So while I don't necessarily have the clearest idea of what this film is about, I'm really glad it exists because the pieces I've seen of it are fascinating but also remarkably sleep-inducing.

    As is typical Herzog, this isn't a documentary about the Amazon, it's a documentary about a man obsessed with piloting a small balloon over the Amazon. Herzog invests in the human characters and, as always, knows exactly when to let the cameras continue rolling to capture the best shots. If you want a film to relax to there's much here to sit back and enjoy, or you can get engrossed in the stories and people involved. Either way, it's yet another fantastic Herzog documentary.

    Whew, this documentary is dull. A pleasant 30-minute short is buried in here somewhere, minus the tangents into diamond mines, lingering wildlife shots, hip-hop dancing and whatever else happens to catch director Werner Herzog's eye. But when the most gripping scene is someone else's footage of a past gorilla safari, you know the film is in trouble. The featured experimental balloon (described as a "white diamond" by one of the locals) isn't radical enough to generate much intrigue, and between the rain-forest setting, man-against-nature theme, droning tribal music and gravelly narration, "The White Diamond" plays almost like a Werner Herzog greatest-hits album. The final shot of thousands of swifts returning to their home behind a waterfall is exquisite, though.
