DVD Release: Cave of Forgotten Dreams

The Gist: This documentary goes inside a cave in France. Deep in the shadows, the world’s oldest cave paintings burst with skill and beauty.

Bottom Line: It’s not often we feel a sense of awe in our modern lives, but seeing these paintings of horses with flowing manes, lions, and other beasts created by some artist before history was recorded – absolutely amazing. Fantastic, as well, that they could grace the walls of any modern museum. To be human, apparently, is to create art.

Be Aware: Director Werner Herzog draws wild and poetic conclusions from these artwork, some of which make sense. Also, as boys will tend to do even today, one prehistoric artist drew lady parts on the wall. Rated G.

Verdict: Watch it. Be amazed.
