Herzog on Herzog

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This text consists of a set of career-length interviews with the German genius once hailed by Francois Truffaut as "the most important film director alive".;Most of what we have heard about Werner Herzog is untrue. The sheer number of false rumours and downright lies disseminated about the man and his films is truly astonishing. Yet Herzog's body of work is one of the most important in post-war European cinema.;His international breakthrough came in 1973 with "Aguirre, the Wrath of God", in which Klaus Kinski played a crazed Conquistador. For "The Enigma of Kasper Hauser", Herzog cast in the lead a man who had spent most of his life institutionalized, and two years later he hypnotized his entire cast to make "Heat of Glass". He rushed to an explosive volcanic Caribbean island to film "La Soufriere", paid homage to F.W. Murnau in a terrifying remake of "Nostferatu" and in 1982 dragged a boat over a mountain in the Amazon jungle for "Fitzcarraldo". More recently Herzog has made extraordinary "documentary" films such as "Little Dieter Needs to Fly". His place in cinema history is assured. This volume of dialogues provides a forum for Herzog's fascinating views on the things, ideas and people that have preoccupied him for so many years.
