Speaking of things to look forward to

This film, directed by Werner Herzog and produced by David Lynch, looks to be a doozy.

Of course, you ignore the silly voice-over and editing of the trailer. The synopsis is 'Inspired by true events, My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done, is a story of ancient myth and modern madness. Brad Macallam, an aspiring actor performing in a Greek tragedy, commits the crime he is to enact in the play by killing his mother. The mystery unfolds in a series of flashbacks displaying the psychological destruction of the killer set off by an ill-fated white-water kayaking trip in a distant land.'

Madness, myth, a river in Peru: Herzog!

As I said in the forum — a Herzog film with a river and a jungle in it — I’m there, but the voiceover in the trailer made me want to tear out my pancreas a little.

'The river – that's reality.'

The film won't have the voiceover.
