Definitely a weakness in my seen list, though I'm pretty certain I've seen more than this (the plot of Fitzcarraldo rings a bell for instance).

For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.

Definitely a favorite, I would put Fassbinder and Murnau ahead of him, but I love Herzog's work too. He is a true visionary, with few exceptions his films are unlike any others and he is able to capture the most incredible, unforgettable images.

*1. Aguirre, The Wrath of God - A (top 20 all-time)
*2. Stroszek - A (tragic, absurd, sad, grand, unforgettable)
*3. Even Dwarfs Started Small - A (go with 4 stars Bill! Posted Image)
*4. Fitzcarraldo - A
*5. Nosferatu, The Vampyre - A
(often forgotten when discussing remakes, even by me, but it is one of the best. Kinski makes a terrific vampire and Bruno Ganz is a haunting Jonathan Harker)
*6. Ten Minutes Older: The Trumpet (2002) (segment "Ten Thousand Years Older") - A (absolutely devastating...another people doomed by our failure to learn from history, arrogance, and greed)
7. My Best Fiend - A- (Ode to Kinski with another unforgettable final image)
*8. Heart Of Glass - A-
*9. Every Man For Himself And God Against All - A-
10. Grizzly Man - A-
11. Lessons of Darkness - A-


12. My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? - A-
*13. Cobra Verde - A-
(carried by imagery and Kinski's unbridled energy)
14. The Dark Glow of the Mountains - B+
15. The White Diamond - B+
16. Little Dieter Needs To Fly - B+
17. Where the Green Ants Dream - B+
18. The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans - B+
19. Encounters at the End of the World - B+
20. Invincible - B+
21. Ballad of the Little Soldier - B+
22. The Great Ecstasy of the Woodcarver Steiner - B+
23. Signs of Life - B


24. Cave of Forgotten Dreams - B
25. Fata Morgana - B
26. La Soufrière - B
27. Rescue Dawn - B
*28. Woyzeck - B-
(incredible opening and closing scenes but the rest is disjointed and somewhat uninteresting. Began shooting 3 days after Nosferatu wrapped with Kinski completely exhausted.)
29. Land of Silence and Darkness - B-
30. Precautions Against Fanatics - B-
31. Wheel of Time - C+
32. How Much Wood Could a Woodchuck Chuck... - C
33. The Wild Blue Yonder - C


34. Ode to the Dawn of Man - C

Own: 10 and have My Best Fiend on VHS

I really want to see more Herzog, but he's not so easy to track down in my tiny city Posted Image . But I have seen:

Nosferatu - A

and

Even Dwarves Started Small - C
I don't care for modern films. All crashing cars and close-ups of people's feet.

Here's some cool news, courtesy of DVDJournal:

Quote:
Finally, New Yorker will release Werner Herzog's Signs of Life on June 14 with a commentary from Herzog, while his Land of Silence and Darkness is expected on the same date. Following on June 28 will be Jean-Luc Godard's Weekend, which will offer commentary from film critic David Sterrit, thoughts from director Mike Figgis, an interview with cinematographer Raoul Coutard, and a trailer. Watch for Godard's For Ever Mozart on the same date as well.

Excellent, I just hope the Week-End transfer is a good one. I really liked Sterrit's commentary for Les Carabiners, glad he got the chance to do another one. New Yorker has improved a lot from the old days when they were comparable to Fox Lorber.

They're also releasing Bresson's L'Argent in a couple of weeks.
