An amazing film, I tell you. Werner Herzog did an excellent job directing, as the cinematography was beautiful. But Christian Bale as an actor should be commended. He stepped into the role with 100% dedication, and his behavior and mannerisms portray what I would assume would be the result of being stuck in captivity against your will. A role that can not be taken lightly, at that. For anyone who hasn’t seen it, it is a tale of an epic struggle for survival, and how one man can be driven to a breaking point to where his thoughts, actions, and decisions lead him to nothing other than to stay alive for one more day.
