Where the Green Ants Dream

Director: Werner Herzog
Year Released: 1984
Rating: 1.5

Classic struggle of Big Business versus the Little Man, only the "little men" here are Aborigines who believe that the land is filled with green ants, and that their demise would lead to global destruction. Aside from the ridiculousness of the idea itself - Herzog concocted the myth - the acting is stilted (as expected from mostly unprofessionals) and the picture itself a lot of new age-y hokum: though, since it is Herzog, there's some wonderful footage of Australia to marvel at.
