Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Herzog's voiceover is, as always, more entertaining than most film soundtracks. The film has a touch of that gray fuzz which still afflicts 3-D, but the Chauvet cave is a perfect candidate for such technology, because it stashes its secrets in a recess.
Fresh: Art history lessons don't get much better: "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" presents the world's oldest paintings captured by one of film's great visionaries.
Fresh: What we come to love about Herzog's documentary is Herzog's love itself.
Fresh: To call "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" a great movie isn't just an understatement, it's a wildly inaccurate way to describe an experience that, in its immersive sensory pleasures and climactic journey of discovery, more closely resembles an ecstatic trance.
I was deeply impressed by this documentary and of course the cave and its unbelievable paintings. A must see.

Spacy Cave Movie
While the movie is visually stimulating and intellectuallly intriguing, I must say Herzog drifts a lot and edits too little. The postscript was really out there!
