A few months ago, the trailer for Werner Herzog's non-remake of Bad Lieutenant was released, and flummoxed the film world with such sights as Nicholas Cage hallucinating iguanas and ordering someone to shoot a dead guy because "his soul is still dancing."

Now, there's a trailer out for his David Lynch collaboration, My Son, My Son What Have Ye Done, and it's about as inexplicable.

I don't know whether it's the overwhelming amount of crazy these trailers pack into a couple minutes or their curious direct-to-video aura, but they're fascinating, and in a not entirely positive way. Here's hoping that once the films are released, these will simply show how unmarketable they were, rather than be accurate reflections of their quality.
