10 legendary moments of Werner Herzog

Werner Herzog is a mystic, a provocateur, a madman who’s seeking ‘certain utopian things… landscapes not yet offended, planets that do not exist yet, dreamed landscapes.’ His films explore the boundaries of human endurance and are less films than gruelling rites of passage he sets for himself. ‘It’s not worth it,’ he said, ‘if you don’t just about die making it.’


Film has dream, film has music. No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight room of the soul. - Ingmar Bergman
