The viewer is usually faced with human megalomania or overall human failure which stands unlike a robust, unconquerable nature. Herzog performs with the presentation of those ideas. they're associated, different, combined and sometimes set in a a bit of mystical context. now and then this combination of opposing parts are that gruesome that the viewer doesn't rather comprehend no matter if to chortle or to cry. there's a regular presence of an uncomfortable type of humour in Herzog’s paintings. a few of Herzog’s motion pictures appear extra like a psychedelic adventure, than a regular, classically instructed tale, which follows narrative legislation like exposition, plot or climax. In those movies the sentiments appear to be extra very important than their narrative starting place and for that reason the tale turns into less significant than what it includes. this is often the Herzog-typical irrational aspect, which leaves the viewer inspired, yet leaves him/her with extra questions than answers.
