Ah, be still my heart. In Herzog’s new release, Rescue Dawn, the delicious Mr. Bale portrays a fighter pilot. Frankly, I plan to buy the video, turn the sound down, and write my own script. Bale claims that he was cast when Mr. Herzog asked if he would be willing to bite a snake in half and he confirmed. Damn, he might just eat my cooking after all. Opens at selected venues: July 4.
