I liked BL:POCNO just fine. I do however agree that features aren't Herz' strong suit anymore - probably hasn't been for 30 years. To stretch it further, I would claim his documentaries have almost always been better than his feature films. For all I care he could've stopped making features altogether after Kinski died.

You could stretch it even further and say that the Kinski movies were all just "fictions" and that Herzog was actually filming the progress of a crazy man.
Remember how he couldn't stop his leg?
