A meticulous, beautifully-modulated film following the compelling true-life account of German-American pilot Dieter Dengler (Bale), forced to crash land in the jungles of Laos at the beginning of the Vietnam War. Herzog's screenplay (revisiting his excellent 1997 documentary 'Little Dieter Needs To Fly') pushes ideas of truth, bravery and obduracy to the fore, and Bale proves again that he's the closest thing contemporary cinema has to a Brando.
