Reviews

"Alan Greenburg's book, which plunges you far into the unstable depths of the creative process, is delirious, madcap, beautifully observed and rendered, and genuinely exhilarating." --Luc Sante, author of "Kill All Your Darlings: Pieces 1990-2005" "Alan Greenberg's great and poetic writing here captures the thick, dark dream mood of Werner Herzog's "Heart of Glass". He magically depicts Werner's deep obsessions, total commitment, and creativity. He shows the way Werner goes about his work using both his mind and hands. This way is rare and spectacular. Alan Greenberg proves beautifully in this book that there will never again be a filmmaker even remotely like Werner Herzog." --David Lynch, director "Good reading." --"Film Comment" "Remarkable." --"Austin Chronicle" Alan Greenberg s great and poetic writing here captures the thick, dark dream mood of Werner Herzog s "Heart of Glass."

Luc Sante, author of "Kill All Your Darlings: Pieces 1990 2005" " "Alan Greenberg's mesmerizing account of the creation and realization of Werner Herzog's"Heart of Glass"(during the filming of which the actors were under hypnosis) is truly unusual and as poetic and mysterious as the film itself." Jim Jarmusch, director" "Alan Greenberg was there when Werner Herzog shot the legendary film "Heart of Glass," and it is this acute witness that informs one of the best books about the art of cinema ever published." Stephen Davis, author of "Hammer of the Gods "and "Jim Morrison"" "Herzog's philosophy of filmmaking as a combination of physical ordeal, trust in the mystical and instinctive, and financial and emotional risk... makes for some great movies - and in the case of "Every Night the Trees Disappear," for great writing about movies." "American Cinematographer"" "Remarkable." "Austin Chronicle"" "It is one of those rare books that you honestly can't put down . . . I recommend this book highly to all fans of Werner Herzog." Media Mikes" "You know from seeing it that Herzog was up to something strange in filming "Heart of Glass." Now the mystery is clarified. Alan Greenberg peers into the heart of darkness of the great artist." Roger Ebert"
