What do you lot make of Werner's movies? I've long thought of him as the only film director of the 70s new wave to keep making often compelling films. A good interview with him on Hardtalk.

I still think of him in connection with the 1970s, Klaus Kinski, and especially Aguirre, the Wrath of God - I also greatly enjoyed his Kinski documentary My Best Fiend. Otherwise, Grizzly Man is only one of his recent films I've seen that remains in my memory.

as of now - midday 8th April, this episode still isn't up on the iPlayer or podcast. Whereas the episodes before, and since (Valerie Amos) are. A BBC anomaly, hope they sort it

It seems to have been broadcast in January, so it is no longer available on i-Player but you can watch the interview on the YouTube link I posted above.

That is odd as I heard it when I switched on the world service on Saturday afternoon. I guess an Easter repeat. Well worth listening to if you have any interest in his films.

Scroll down to January 21.
The first Herzog film I saw was The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, when I got the last seat one Saturday night at the Paris Pullman in South Kensington. I'm surprised to see it came out later than Aguirre. Those are the feature films of his I liked best, but I did enjoy Nicholas Cage's OTT performance in Bad Lieutenant. I think Cave of Forgotten Dreams gort some bad notices here, but the material was quite thrilling and the 3-D worked well.

Thanks. Worth a listen I reckon. Enjoyed cave of vergessenen dreams, and heart of glass, in recent years. His musical choices seem to work for me, so his antennae are functioning for creations. Will try to check out Bad Lieutenant & Grizzly Man, or at least their soundtracks, one day. Didn't Richard Thompson do some of the grizzly one, or am I crossing wires there?

Richard did all the music for Grizzly Man -

Richard & Werner
