Werner Herzog's latest documentary explores the desolate and unforgiving terrain of Antarctica, but the film itself is full of life. Having set out to avoid making another penguin movie, Herzog focuses on the patchwork of interesting souls living among the iceā€”from the banker-turned-driver of "Ivan the Terra Bus" to the linguist living and working on a continent with no native languages. The stories are fascinating, the images startling, and the overall prognosis for the continent bleak. (See movie times, www.thestranger.com, for details.)
