Film of Today - The Gates of Heaven


This documentary promises much. Errol Morris made this documentary about a pet cemetary in California.
Morris, who know is well known for his Oscar nominated documentary A FOG OF WAR, was brought to my attention, during the Herzog retrospective at NFT, London I think 2002. Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe, has become a classic among Herzog fans, where he famously cooks and eats his shoe, the very reason for this is that he promised one of his students that he would eat and cook his shoe if he went ahead and made/finished this film (Gates of Heaven I believe).

Just wanted to drop by to say hello. This is CF, from the Bañeres crew.
Art Vs sport?
Is there a form of art higher than sport?
Nah.... ;)

Cheers and regards,

Well that is the question. I believe Sport has its place amongst Art and I firmly think that Ronaldinho, Maradona, Zidane should have the great respect of the Old Masters in art.
