Watch This: A One Hour Documentary about Werner Herzog from 1982


Nobody pronounces the words "prehistorical dinosaurs" like Werner Herzog. It's something like "prehistoorical dino-sours." If hearing and seeing a young Werner Herzog wandering around with a camera crew and musing pessimistically; playing soccer and talking about his favorite soccer player; riding the prow of a small boat and philosophizing about shipwrecks, etc; sounds like a party to you - strap on the pointy hat and press play here.

Along the way he also speaks with film historian Lotte Eisner, and there are many illustrative clips from his films. It's good stuff.
