Via the (non official) fan page dedicated to Werner Herzog on Fb – http://www.facebook.com/wernerherzog.ds – I’ve just learned the most fascinating news: our favourite living director Werner Herzog has opened a film school. (Maybe the news is quite old, I don’t know, but I thought I’d (re)share it anyway.)
Then, after visiting Google Books, do go out and order the full “Herzog on Herzog”, as it is one of the very best books I’ve yet read on film making, and an utter must for everyone who loves both the personality and the movies of Werner Herzog. (Thank you Paul Cronin for insisting and ultimately convincing Mr. Herzog to have himself interviewed so diligently.) On pages 227-228, you’ll find Herzog commenting on his eight part, 240′ film documentary “Film Lesson” (Vienna, 1991).
For more on Herzog:
(Am a tad sceptical about the “Bad lieutenant” remake – Ferrara’s film was perfect as it was and who can possibly better Keitel’s role – but still … can’t wait to see it – and “My son, my son, what have ye done” too. And what to think about Lynch teaming up with Jodorowsky?!?)
