Herzog loves to document humanity's perpetual struggle with nature, and in The White Diamond, the jungle -- sometimes makes sophisticated human technology laughably clumsy.

Russell Edwards

Herzog's eye for the weird sometimes makes the docu feel strained, but engaging characters imbue the pic with depth and emotional appeal.

Herzog illustrates through both Dorrington and the Rastafarian the wonder of simply being human.

Although The White Diamond is entire of itself, it earns its place among the other treasures and curiosities in Herzog's work.

A minor but often visually stunning meditation on nature and man's desire to conquer it.

Jeffrey Chen
Window to the Movies

The film is one small story and how it can be presented and interpreted to mean so much, giving significance to a more introspective definition of triumph.

When we finally see the ship sailing through majestic cloud formations over the breathtaking Amazon canopy, the name seems absolutely fitting -- for a gem of an aircraft and a jewel of a movie.

Jack Mathews
New York Daily News

The film is rather aimless, if not pointless, but you cannot take your eyes off it for one second.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Combustible Celluloid

One of Herzog's most breathtaking and life-affirming films.
