The Ancients stayed close to Nature, thought with her, and without extraordinary contrivances, they played with matter.

Werner Herzog moves from the jungles of Peru and into the desert of Australia, and loses himself along the way. This is perhaps the sloppiest and least focused work I've seen by the man.
Still, it's a Herzog, so it's worth checking out if you are into his stuff. But I can much more enthusiastically recommend other films about Aboriginal magic and culture: Rabbit-Proof Fence, and Weir's The Last Wave.
