Synopsis:

An invaluable set of career-length interviews with the German genius hailed by François 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 Soufrière, 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.
This revised edition features new interviews discussing Herzog's films up to From One Second to the Next (2013), as well as additional text from Herzog, his collaborator Herbert Golder, the physicist Lawrence Krauss, and the filmmaker Harmony Korine.

About the Author: Werner Herzog has directed more than sixty films, notably Aguirre, the Wrath of God; The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser; Fitzcarraldo; Little Dieter Needs to Fly; Grizzly Man; and Cave of Forgotten Dreams. He is the author of several books, including Conquest of the Useless, and has staged more than a dozen operas around the world.
Paul Cronin is the editor of the filmmaker trilogy: Lessons withKiarostami, Werner Herzog: A Guide for the Perplexed, and AlexanderMackendrick's On Film-Making: An Introduction to the Craft of theDirector. He has made films about Amos Vogel, Peter Whitehead andHaskell Wexler's Medium Cool. His website is filmmakertrilogy.com.
