Rescue Dawn is mentioned as San Jose Mercury News – Best Of 2007 Movies. Read the article below.
“Rescue Dawn”: In 1997, Werner Herzog made the documentary “Little Dieter Needs to Fly,” about Dieter Dengler, the German-born American pilot shot down over Laos in the early years of the Vietnam War and imprisoned in the jungle for years. His feature-film version revisits the material. It stars Christian Bale as the charismatic oddball, who essentially rescues himself through force of will. The story is inspirational, but free of Hollywood cheese. I loved it for that and the power of its performances: Bale is a revelation, Steve Zahn does the best work of his career as Dengler’s cellmate.
