'Walking to Werner'
If you saw the mediocre Outsourced
at SIFF and were saddened by the apparent want of imagination
on the part of Seattle filmmakers, be prepared to be knocked out by this film
. Documenting a harebrained pilgrimage from Seattle to Werner Herzog's house in L.A., Walking to Werner
becomes a meditation on the varieties of spiritual experience
on America's left coast. Best of all is the found narration, hilariously repurposed from the commentary tracks on Herzog's DVDs. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 267-5380
