內容簡介

內容簡介 An invaluable set of career-length interviews with the German genius hailed by Fran�ois Truffaut as "the most important film director alive"Most of what we've heard about Werner Herzog is untrue. The sheer number of false rumors 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 postwar 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 Kaspar 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 Heart of Glass. He rushed to an explosive volcanic Caribbean island to film La Soufri�re, paid homage to F. W. Murnau in a terrifying remake of Nosferatu, 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, and Paul Cronin's 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. Herzog on Herzog is a career-spanning set of interviews with the legendary German filmmaker once hailed by Francois Truffaut as the most important director alive. Famous for his frequent collaborations with mercurial actor Klaus Kinski - including the epics Aguirre, the Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo, and the terrifying Nosferatu - Werner Herzog has built a body of work that is one of the most vital in post-war European cinema.Most of what we think we know about Herzog is untrue: he is a director around whom a quite astonishing number of myths, rumours, and downright lies have accumulated. This book, offering innumerable insights into the making of his extraordinary films, also sets the record straight on the many controversies that have accompanied them. We learn of his adventures during the arduous production of Aguirre in the Peruvian jungle; of his casting of the previously institutionalized Bruno S. in The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser; the hypnosis of the entire cast of Heart of Glass; his journey to an explosive volcanic Caribbean island to film La Soufriere; and his infamous dragging of a boat over a mountain in the Amazon jungle for Fitzcarraldo. Later chapters focus on his `documentary' films, such as Lessons of Darkness and Little Dieter Needs to Fly.
