Repertory watch/Werner Herzog season

Herzog shoes another scene

The great German directo, Werner Herzog, has got to be one of the most ardent searchers for cinematic truth as well as one of the most uncomprimising film artists to ever swim in the piranha-infested film industry. With films like Fitzcarraldo and The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, he's made history as one of the major proponents of the so-called New German Cinema.
A visionary, a madman, a philosopher and a great film-maker. For those who know little or nothing about Herzog, don't miss the opportunity to brush up on the auteur at the season dedicated to him that goes on until 22 September at the Goethe-Institut London and Ciné lumière (see links bar on the right). See you there.
