Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers

Rating:No Rating
Genre:Documentary
Release Date:January 1, 1980
Running time:51 minutes
Cast:Werner Herzog
Director:Les Blank

Description: That's the title, all right; we're not making it up. Filmmaker Les Blank, whose previous documentaries have been sometimes humorous, sometimes dead-serious studies in obsession, here investigates the topic of garlic. You will be amazed at the hundreds of uses to which that pungent herb can be put. And, for you devotees of vampire stories and asafetida bags, you'll be given a brief rundown of the ages-old garlic mystique. It's not for nothing that Les Blank was the 1990 recipient of the award named after avant-garde filmmaker Maya Deren.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
