Cool Videos: Plastic Bag, voiced by Werner Herzog
"You may be thinking, 'Hey, shut up and enjoy the sunset, you idiot."
Those are the ruminations of a plastic bag. A plastic bag voiced by psychotic/brilliant German filmmaker Werner Herzog. Do you really need another reason to watch?
Synopsis: This short film by American director Ramin Bahrani (Goodbye Solo) traces the epic, existential journey of a plastic bag (voiced by Werner Herzog) searching for its lost maker, the woman who took it home from the store and eventually discarded it. Along the way, it encounters strange creatures, experiences love in the sky, grieves the loss of its beloved maker, and tries to grasp its purpose in the world.
|Extra Tidbit:||While filming the 1970 film EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL, Herzog's cast of midgets stopped work and revolted. In and effort to restore peace and order, he promised to roll around in a cactus patch. Herzog did, and work continued.|
