This was amazing. The colors and direction made it feel like the movie was even shot in 1965. This is at the least in the top 3 bales for me between this dark Knight and American hustle. Wait what about the fighter?! Damn this guy is in some good movies. Let's give it up for Steve Zahn too. Wish he had more roles like this. Or like saving silverman. That's great too. Much more a conventional film than I'm used to by werner herzog but still had some of his touches.

Another great performance from Christian Bale, but Steve Zahn and (especially) Jeremy Davies stole the show.
