Encounters at the End of the World (2007)

Werner Herzog goes to Antarctica to explain why he hates civilization, global warming, ugly mining towns, climate-controlled buildings, "stupid" New Age philosophy, aerobics classes, the "abomination" that is yoga, money-grubbing people who want him to make movies about "fluffy little penguins," and sunlight.

What does he like? Underwater filming in temperatures far below freezing, philosophers who drive forklifts, and scientists.

Also, he wants to know whether penguins ever suffer from insanity and why chimps don't ride goats.

It's a really good documentary, actually.
