That's a cackle.
So I guess you're predicting a win for Stroszek, and a loss for Aguirre, the Wrath of God?
You've reminded me that I have to get around to seeing Aguirre. I confess I haven't.For any who don't know, this clip is the bizarre ending of a Werner Herzog film Stroszek.I won't bore you with my end-spoiling interpretation; suffice it to say, the chicken's dance represents futility.The election is over now, so I guess I'm predicting a ride to nowhere on a ski-lift with a frozen turkey, an unpiloted, burning truck turning circles, an ominous shotgun blast, and, yes, a roadside attraction featuring a dancing chicken.I can't wait!
Also, apologies to whoever left the first comment. Comment moderation was activated inadvertently, and when I moderated, the comment was vaporized. Comment moderation is turned off.Also, I've risen from the emotional dead and am back to work now on another hilarious and deeply profound post, earth-shattering in its relevance, no doubt. Maybe in a day or two.
I haven't seen Stroszek, just read about it and heard about the Chicken/Duck/Rabbit trio.I would say that you really should see Aguirre in a theater, but that's probably not possible unless you attend a Herzog film festival. When you see it, you will recognize the uber-prototype of our neo-con friends. I'm sure most of them would love to cavort about in the sort of armor he sports.
