Werner Herzog isn’t simply one of my favorite directors of all time, but one of the most interesting and fascinating human beings on this doomed planet. A product of West Germany’s Neue Kino or New German Cinema movement of the 60’s and 70’s, Herzog directed many art house classics, including Aguirre: The Wrath of God, and Fitzcarraldo. In more recent years, he’s directed Lessons in Darkness and the critically accalimed Grizzly Man, and has been criticized for blurring the boundaries between real and unreal, manipulating the documentary experience to suit his own creative purposes. Here he is being interviewed by none other than Henry Rollins on IFC’s Henry Rollins Show, and then amazingly being shot by a Los Angeles air rifle sniper during a BBC interview with Mark Kermode.
