Werner Herzog at 80


To mark the 80th birthday of one of cinema’s most enigmatic and polarising characters, Mark Kermode and Ellen E Jones explore the work, myth and legacy of Werner Herzog.An encounter with Herzog is always compelling, and sometimes risky. When Mark interviewed him in the Hollywood Hills in 2006, the director was shot - an incident he dismissed as ‘not significant’.From the safe distance of a few thousand miles away, Mark and Werner reconnect (over Zoom) to address the conspiracy theory that the shooting was staged. Herzog also looks back at the enduring appeal of Fitzcarraldo, how his world view informs his work, and why there’s a lesson to be learned in keeping up with the Kardashians.To separate fact from fiction, Ellen E Jones talks to volcanologist and co-director of two Herzog documentaries, Professor Clive Oppenheimer. They discuss Herzog’s scientific mind and why Clive kept quiet about a near miss with a lava bomb as they filmed Into the Inferno.Writer and director Zak Penn used the Herzog legend as the inspiration for his mockumentary Incident at Loch Ness, which starred Herr Herzog as himself. Ellen and Zak discuss the tricks he played on his leading man, how he’s easy to surprise but impossible to shock, and why Werner Herzog is such a beloved and supportive collaborator.And DJ and broadcaster Edith Bowman gives her Viewing Notes.Producer: Freya HellierA Prospect Street production for BBC Radio 4

Blood on the Tracks Episode 56: Popol Vuh Scores for Werner Herzog Films.

They Must Be Destroyed On Sight!

This month Lee takes a casual look into one of his favourite musical artists who often composed scores for film. That would be Florian Fricke, the leader and central creative force behind the musical collective known as Popol Vuh. Popol Vuh created music both in the studio for their own releases and to score several films, most notably in collaboration with prolific film maker Werner Herzog. In this episode Lee plays some of his favourite tracks from those collaborations with Herzog (at least from the ones he could source). To spare you Lee's terrible pronunciations of German titles, he does none of the usual intros to the tracks this episode, and reserves his general comments to the opening of the show. --Aguirre I (l'acrime di rei & Flöte); Morgengruss II; & Agnus Dei from "Aguirre, the Wrath of God" (1972)--Tracks 1 & 4 from "The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner" (1975)--Engel Der Gegenwart & Hüter Der Schwelle from "Heart of Glass" (1976)--Brüder Des Schattens; Mantra 2; & Die Nacht Der Himmel from "Nosferatu the Vampyre" (1979)--Wehe Khorazin & Im Garten der Gemeinschaft from "Fitzcarraldo" (1982)--Der Tod des Cobra Verde from "Cobra Verde" (1988) Opening and closing music: Magic and Ecstasy from "Exorcist II: The Heretic" by Ennio Morricone, and The Shadow of the Killer from "Death Rage" by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis.

#360 - Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo - WatchThis W/RickRamos

Watch This With Rick Ramos

A Heavy Metaphor: Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo On this week's episode, Ibrahim & I look at a controversial and divisive film, Werner Herzog's Fitzcarraldo ( 1982). Herzog has proven himself a true artist and poet of Cinema. The notorious and infamous actions of his filmmaking history are well known. Irresponsible filmmaking or the Dogged Determination of an artist unwilling to compromise? The question is an important one to ask. In no other film that I have watched have I felt the overwhelming sense of danger and awe that must have been palpable on the set of Herzog's 1982. From losing two major actors, through cast and crew rebellion, violence directed at the production and crew, and - finally - the often violently contentious relationship between Herzog and his (six time) leading man, Klaus Kinski, the debate on responsible filmmaking is unmatched in the modern-era of filmmaking. With a demanding eye rivaling Fritz Lang and Erich von Stroheim, with Fitzcarraldo, Herzog certainly made a name for himself in the history of cinematic visionaries. Take a listen as we debate the merits of Herzog, Kinski, and the production. We think you'll find it interesting. Many Thanks.  Questions, Comments, Complaints, & Suggestions can be directed to gondoramos@yahoo.com.
