This edition of Herzog on Herzog presents a completely new set of interviews in which Werner Herzog discusses his career from its very beginnings to his most recent productions. Herzog was 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 - and more recently with documentaries such as Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams and Into the Abyss, Herzog has built a body of work that is one of the most vital in post-war German cinema.

Reviews

Praise for "Werner Herzog: A Guide for the Perplexed" Named one of the best film books of 2014 by "The Independent "and" Brain Pickings" "[A] magnificent volume of interviews. . . This book presents an opportunity to enjoy extended musings from one of the most fascinating minds to which we are fortunate enough to have collective access. . . Reading [Herzog] expounding on his myriad interests and obsessions, in tones that are full and fluent without ever crossing into pretentiousness or obscurity, is a tonic for the brain." --Hannah McGill, "The Independent ""Extraordinary . . . the book is so full of marvelous passages that one could go on quoting forever . . . What is remarkable about "A Guide for the Perplexed" . . . is the access it provides to the furious inner excitement of one of the great artists . . . of our time." --Francine Prose, "Prospect"""A Guide for the Perplexed" is a blockbuster performance of telling and hiding: remembering, denying, cursing, reliving traumas and triumphs; picking over all the project, triumphant and forgotten. This much revised and updated version of the one published in 2002 is an invaluable guide to a head-fought life and career. It is a black bible of verbiage, controlled rants and recollections, fit to stand beside any of the wandering director's savage pilgrimages." --Iain Sinclair, "The Times Literary Supplement""This month, Faber published "A Guide for the Perplexed," a compendium of conversations between Herzog and the writer Paul Cronin . . . I'm putting my neck out and saying it's the best book I've read all year." --Nathalie Olah, "Vice""A spectacular read . . . offering a rare glimpse of one of the most ravenously imaginative minds of our time." --Maria Popova, "Brain Pickings""The heftiest and most fascinating one-stop guide that the Herzog fan, or even newcomer, could possibly ask for." --Seven Magazine "[A] magnificent volume of interviews. . .
