30 minutes
Werner Herzog's maddest project (1977), a documentary filmed on the deserted island of Guadeloupe—deserted because it was expected to be destroyed in a massive volcanic eruption. Herzog and his crew wander the empty streets in search of the one man who refused to be evacuated. Although the disaster failed to take place (and Herzog, narrating, seems sorely disappointed), this 30-minute film remains a disturbing, even intimidating, meditation on the apocalypse and a frighteningly vivid display of man's love of death.
