"Someone is shooting at us, we must go..." The film director Walter Herzog was shot whilst being interviewed by the BBC, giving rise to perhaps the manliest line ever uttered aloud. Read the article, get to the last line, and then join me in a chestbeating chorus, my noble monkey brethren.
  • He ain't got time to bleed.
  • Ah, posted by our own hero-- and Danger is HIS middle name.
  • WERNER
  • Wow. Don't mess with guys named Werner.
  • when a sniper opened fire with an air rifle Pardon me, but this is a contradiction in terms. Sniper? Air rifle?
  • sniper n : a marksman who shoots at people from a concealed place.
  • It is not a significant bullet. Insignificant bullets hit other people, fool!
  • *ponders whether to register significantbullet.com*
  • Cross-examination of state's female witness by me: "If he was threatening to kill you if you didn't leave and he was pointing a gun at you, why didn't you leave?" "We all gotta die sometime."
  • "Insignificant bullets hit other people, fool!" Yeah, but they mostly just annoy them if they're from an air rifle. Amd. I still don't understand why I would care.
  • Werner, yes. And now I'm a dead man, obviously.
  • This is the man who not only worked with Klaus Kinski (who was certifiably insane) in more than one film, but also reportedly threatened to shoot Kinski and himself if Kinski left the set of Aguirre: The Wrath of God. The man is afraid of nothing.
  • the world is so full of a number of things that bite me and smite me and do fancy piercing and crush me and squash me and gall me and maul me that the miracle is that I ain't become balmy
  • He also rescues celebrities from overturned cars, apparently.
  • Yeah, it's a weird newscycle when I've read about Werner Herzog twice this week.
  • I got shot in the neck from about 10-15ft away... it hurt significantly.
  • It *is* a new keyboard, isn't it, berswavly!
  • Maybe it was the Herzog that made him so tough, rather than the Werner.
  • "I got shot in the neck from about 10-15ft away... it hurt significantly." by an air rifle? Or by a real gun? Because I'm thinking shot in the neck by a real gun would most likely kill you, unless you're like Travis Bickle and the bullet missed everything major. I knew a kid at high school lost an eye to an air gun. They may be trifling, but they can do damage. Get some pretty powerful air rifles.
  • Doesn't Herzog pretty much translate to 'duke'?
  • Same old keyboard, tick I just have more time to preview. Now if I just had a spell-checker...
  • If you hear his narration in Grizzly Man, it's pretty apparent that he's a bad-ass nihilist.
  • Eh, er, bees, if you use firefox browser, I can switch you on to a spellchecker extension..
  • Grizzly Man was a most unusual film. I watched it twice, engrossed. Which is probably why I split my sides laughing at this.
  • Chy, thanks mate -- please do. As long as it's not part of the Firefox ensemble it may work -- the utilities on this machine are so screwed they reject all FF extensions and plug-ins.
  • Oh, well, that's blown it then, because it is indeed a FF extension. I'm sure I can find a standalone spellchecker, though.
  • Takes bullets, eats shoes, this guy is a mensh.
  • Quirk: How about shmuck? Grand Haggis: Ah, yes, we have a contendah!
  • He's Batman.
  • A long time ago, me and my cousin were playing with a BB gun, and he shot his little brother with it. Our dads found out, and chased us up a tree, where they proceeded to shoot the fuck out of us. My cousin got shot the most (like six or seven times), since he was the perp, but I still got shot for being part of it (and probably because my old man knew we'd learn a lesson, and he wouldn't get another opportunity/excuse to shoot me with a BB gun.) Good times.
  • Well, I may be a little weird, but I call that child abuse.
  • Man, you could plumb a house with the copper I've dug out of my ass. Okay, not really. But I've been shot with more than a few air rifles. Now, given the description of the wound, I'm sure this was more powerful than a Red Ryder BB gun, but seriously. Air rifle == Big welt with a little hole in it + ow fuck that hurts + pardon me, let's move the interview indoors. Deer/actual big-boy sniper rifle == Holy shit there's a big gaping hole in my leg AH FUCKBUTTER AAAUUUUGH + tourniquet + pass out.
  • MCT: I'm nominating you for quote of the year.
  • I knew some kids who'd put their snowsuits on in June and have BB gun fights. Being a fragile, solitary sort myself, I opted for practicing my air pistol aim in my parents' unfinished basement. The ricochets off the concrete walls stung like a mother, but when the arms came off of those army men... mmmm. Uh, and I also love Werner Herzog.
  • When Herzog walks, you can hear his balls clank.
  • Sniper? Air rifle? Snifer riple, perhaps.
  • He should split the difference and call himself "Werzog." The fool's missing a golden opportunity.
  • You can listen to the estimable Dr. Mark Kermode talk about the Werzog shooty incident (and the Werzog/Joaquin car incident, and the general magnificence of the Werzog) in the on the podcast of his regular Radio 5 movie review slot, available here. Quality stuff.
  • He also faced down the fucking Loch Ness Monster and lived! Ok, not really. I heard he killed a man with a guitar string...
  • I heard he uproots trees with his bare hands!
  • Werner Herzog once punched a hole in a cow just to see who was coming up the road.
  • "... and here I was sitting next to Kinski at the Telluride Film Festival, which is funny, because not less than a week before, I had finally ended my plot to kill him." ah Herzog, a beloved lunatic.
  • Werner Herzog once punched a hole in a cow just to see who was coming up the road. /collapse

  • The Werzog once drove a tank through seventeen wardrobes. The Werzog can beat sharks to death with his hair. The Werzog cannot hear sighing.

  • Werner Herzog has three knees.
  • The Werzog loves you with all of his might!
  • If he goes outside with his shirt off for too long, the sun gets a Werner Herzogburn.
  • And hence the phrase, "I hate it with the passion of a single burning Werzog."
  • he was bleeding quietly in his boxer shorts! The man is fearless.
  • Werzog puts the hurtzog.
  • Chyren, what's the name of that FireFox extension? I heard Werner Herzog singing arias in the woods, and I was weeping a mixture of blood and sauerkraut along with all the other forest creatures from the unearthly beauty of his voice.
  • Crop circles are Werzog's way of telling the world that sometimes corn needs to lie the fuck down. /favorite Vin Diesel fact
  • Werner Herzog can turn Water Diesel into Vin Diesel.
  • "I got out of the car and I said, 'Thank you,' " Phoenix said. "And he was gone." Also Herzog don't sleep he waits.
  • InsolentChimp, here is spellbound. Disclosure: I havenay tried it.
  • I saw Werzog drinking a piña colada at Trader Vic's. His hair was perfect.
  • Werner Herzog rests in deep holes, which he digs in the banks of the River Tiber or the Nile. At times he lines the holes with hair collected from Johnny Depp's shower drain. No one knows why.
  • I heard that Werner Herzog has never lost a sock or mitten.
  • At times he lines the holes with hair collected from Johnny Depp's shower drain. No one knows why. Any cinemagoer can tell you the reason for that - he's trying to make a rope to lash turtles together into a raft.
  • When calculating the square root of a complex number, the answer is always Werzog's IQ.
  • I heard that Werner Herzog fucked one hundred women in a single night, and got them all pregnant. But that's just what I've heard.

  • It's because he types with a set of raw sausages, he tells me, mum.
  • Who.? Herzog? This bears repeating: The Bible once had a Book of Herzog, but in 1455 Johann Gutenberg forgot to include it because, as friends would later recount, "It blew my fuckin' mind!!!".
  • Werner Herzog has a three-foot, prehensile penis. He uses it for knife fights and dating Delta Burke.
  • Werner Herzog speaks and writes fluent l33t and Navajo. He learned Navajo from an ancient Indian sage, whom he hunted for weeks in the deepest wilderness. When he'd finally located the grey-haired shaman, he sat crosslegged outside his tipi for days, with no food or water, hallucinating heavily, until the great chief came out to him and beckoned him inside. Once inside, Herzong quickly hooked his index and middle fingers into the wise man's nostrils, bent his head backwards, and karate-chopped him in the sternum until he agreed to teach him the complex, unique language. The l33t he learned on AOL.
  • new adjective: werzogian example: The naked wrestlers groped each other with werzogian gusto.
  • In Soviet Russia, Werner Herzog fucks your sister with a rake.

  • /wakes up from below a rock Ooohhhhh yeaaah. Any director that takes a fuckin' ship up & down a mountain to make a film is hardcore.
  • German-speaking countries measure macho in units of Werzogs.
  • MCT has a Werzog fixation of werzogian proportions. Werzog pulled on Superman's cape and the bitch did nothing about it. Werzog spit into the wind and the wind didn't dare throw it back, but wafted it gently across the airstreams of the earth, afraid to let it settle on the base, dirty earth. It still floats in the upper stratosphere, a globule of perfect light. Werzog took the mask off the old Lone Ranger. He dug up Clayton Moore's grave, took the mask, and used it for a nutsling. Jay Silverheels he let rest in peace. Werzog fucking killed Jim.
  • As I set down one evening within a small cafe / A six foot-seven waitress, to me these words did say / "I see you are a Herzog and not a common bum / For no one but a Herzog stirs his coffee with his thumb. "My lover was a Herzog, there's none like him today / If you'd sprinkle whisky on it, he'd eat a bale of hay / He never shaved the whiskers from off his horny hide / But he'd pound 'em in with a hammer, then bite 'em off inside..."
  • When Werzog was a trucker, he would carry the load on his back to save gasoline. If it needed refrigeration, he would tell it not to get warm.
  • Werner Herzog's mother has bats in her vagina. Ordinarily this wouldn't be a problem for Werner, except for the fact that he had to fight his way out during childbirth.
  • Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier with broken ribs, and later bailed out of a Starfighter and his face caught on fire when it hit the rocket on the bottom of his ejector seat.
  • Still, Chuck is no Herzog.
  • Werzog broke the light barrier with his bones on fire, vomiting mightily. This is now known as Aurora Borealis.
  • As a youth, Herzog fashioned a rudimentary trebuchet from an old bicycle and some shower flipflops, and shelled his neighbors with alternating clods of meatloaf and dog poop until they surrendered and paid him tribute in the form of Pop Rocks and ancient Playboy magazines.
  • Werner Herzog actually wrote Faust, but said it was Goethe, because he didn't want to seem like a fucking pansy. He also performed all the roles in the Wagner's Ring Cycle in one nonstop performance, in honour of his mother's birthday, at the old folks' home. Which he also built. Out of stone he quarried with his teeth.

  • Werrner "Hertz-so-good" Herzog once turned a transvestite into a woman using pure mind-lightning in order to have sex with 'him' on a dare from Errol Morris. Errol Flynn was the aging, warty-packaged transvestite. He changed 'her' back later saying he was too comfortable with his strident manliness to let "screwing a poof like Flynn" bother him. Thanks Chyren... if I can figure out how it works, I'll let you know
  • Werrner "Hertz-so-good" Herzog once turned a transvestite into a woman using pure mind.... Ha, ha, well that's a pretty silly claim!

  • Werner Herzog left Germane Greer sated and without words.
  • In 1972 a crack commando was sent to prison by a military court for a crime he didn't commit. He promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a director of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire the Herzog.
  • Whenever I am presented with a dilemma, all I have to do is gaze down at the initials "W.W.T.W.D." on the leathery band around my wrist, made from the Werzog's cast-off foreskin, and the correct course of action becomes known to me.
  • Werzog once got super pissed and crocheted the most frightening afghan in history. It laid waste to most of the Mississippi valley, leaving wool and despair in its wake, and almost sent the entire state of Louisana floating off into the gulf. It also keeps his legs nice and toasty.
  • Werzog is writing down all our names and addresses.
  • Werner Herzog took the title of Pimp of the Year from Arch Bishop Don Magic Juan.
  • Werzog is as Werzog does, and yes, Werzog has done much. He spent last Christmas opening successive cans of Nonesuch. He emptied them between his jaws an 'twere a contact sport; He rinsed the cans and used them all to build a Yuletide fort. And oh, what larks and revels did that wobbly structure see! He did the Caked-With-Mincemeat Dance and set the lobsters free! His Christmas tree was hung with clods of flour-and-water paste, And marrow bones, and chanterelles, and seasoning to taste. And underneath the savory and slightly dripping boughs Was all the filmy lingerie he'd wrapped up for the cows. And then he melted on the couch in lush midwinter lethargy. (The cows, who wanted rollerblades, were burning him in effigy.)
  • thats it! The Underpants Monster, I want you to marry me. And I want the Werzog to perform the ceremony :D
  • Werner Herzog is responsible for every species that has gone extinct - he hates mouth breathers.

  • Brilliant, Underpants Monster!
  • *bows low to TUM in the traditional fashion*
  • (((((
  • Werner Herzog is jealous of that poem.
  • What Werzog-worthy words, TUM!

  • Well here's another clue for you all- The Werzog was Paul...

  • Flags, I was going to post that same link! But then Werzog looked at me with one blazing eye, and I was afraid

  • The world is chaos. I am unsuccessful at crying.
  • CHILD: I have a dog and a cat named Sabrina, my sister’s name is Sabrina too but she’s not a cat. HERZOG: Is the cat named after the sister? CHILD: No. HERZOG: Is the sister named after the cat? CHILD: No. HERZOG: How old is the sister? CHILD: I’m five. HERZOG: You can die at any age.
  • I heard Werner Herzog came up with the Certainty Principle.
  • Werner Herzog does not 'know'. That would imply that there was an opposite of knowing... something he might not know. Herzog allows us to comprehend that he is aware of the facts.
  • MonkeyFilter: Made from the Werzog's cast-off foreskin
  • From the greatest website ever:
    ...a motion picture about a figure who has apocalyptic visions and foresees destruction and collective madness. The entire cast acted under hypnosis. Werner Herzog`s bleak vision of a rebellion and the resulting mayhem in an institution. The entire world is inhabited by midgets. Dr. Gene Scott, an American TV preacher, manages to collect several hundred thousand dollars within 30 minutes. A film about a monomaniac and a nationwide malaise, a film about greed and currency. A film about the Final Days of poetry. Shot at the World Championship of Livestock Auctioneers. A report about an inevitable catastrophe that did not take place...
    I'm learning German and selling my blood to buy the DVD box set. I have enough in the bank for the set, but it can only truly be purchased with blood.
  • but it can only truly be purchased with blood. Werzog stopped paying in money 20 years ago. He has never handled a Euro.
  • The Werzog keeps his word (longish, YouTube video file)
  • The Werzog has now been added to the Wiki.
  • The Werzog gives advice to young directors: "Go into the mountains, as long as it is not prohibitive."
  • y'all who have access to the cable channel IFC should set your tivos for next saturday night at 10, when the Werzog will be a guest on the Henry Rollins Show. You got your Werzog in my Rollins!
  • This jumped out at me from today's sad news: 'Israeli Security Cabinet Minister Isaac Herzog said: "We are taking strong measures so that it will be clear to the Lebanese people and government ... that we mean business."' If he'd just ask for his brother Werner's help, then it would be very clear indeed.
  • German filmmaker Uwe Boll challenges critics to boxing match. Is he related to Der Werzog?
  • I'd line up to beat up Uwe Boll.
  • Raging Boll on YouTube. Spoiler: He kicked all their asses.
  • Chuck Norris pants via MeFi. And no, there are no Werzog pants. Idiot.
  • Oh, they're Werzog pants. THey may not know it yet, but they're Werzog pants. That's just how things work when the Werzog is involved.
  • I was just watching Nosferatu the Vampyre last night :)
  • Gird your loins. He's back.
  • Incidentally, Werzog's loins are permanently girded.
  • Q. There have been some accusations that you’ve taken liberties with facts in some of your documentaries and in “Rescue Dawn,” particularly from the family of Eugene DeBruin. What is your reaction to those accusations? A. If we are paying attention about facts, we end up as accountants. If you find out that yes, here or there, a fact has been modified or has been imagined, it will be a triumph of the accountants to tell me so. But we are into illumination for the sake of a deeper truth, for an ecstasy of truth, for something we can experience once in a while in great literature and great cinema. I’m imagining and staging and using my fantasies. Only that will illuminate us. Otherwise, if you’re purely after facts, please buy yourself the phone directory of Manhattan. It has four million times correct facts. But it doesn’t illuminate. Word.
  • Werner Herzog is 65 today. Celebrate by eating a cake made of nails and frosted with sandpaper.
  • What is that in human years?
  • Werner Herzog is not 65 today. The number 65 is Werner Herzog today. Four years from now, I am gonna Werner Herzog the hell out of my wife. I'm sorry.
  • Great article. I can't wait to see Rescue Dawn, because what could be better than Christian Bale in a Herzog film? Nothing. I love Christian Bale, and someday I will marry him. MARK MY WORDS.
  • I like the Bergman one.
  • BBC4 is having a Werner Herzog night! Right now, as I write. Aguirre Wrath of God started about 30 mins ago.
  • Aguirre is excellent. As is "Little Dieter."
  • They just showed the shooting sequence...
  • Yes! TenaciousPettle gave me his old DVD copy. I may have to rewatch tonight.
  • ...just noticed the typo in the post title....can that be corrected?
  • I just noticed that too. I don't think that used to be that way. ...?
  • I suppose you believe it's the Herzog Effect.
  • Ouch! Have we been hacked? I am SURE that "typo" wasn't there before. This is scary. And hateful.
  • thank you RTD, I thought I must be crazy. that DEFINITELY wasn't there before. WTF???
  • just noticed it too- it definitely used to be a B. I'm assuming the Werzog must have chewed up that B and shat out an N in its place? Tsk.
  • Yuck. That was done after I posted last night. Some cretin has hacked the database, apparently.
  • Probably Dave Chappelle.
  • Admin! Please hope us!
  • Oh man. I'm so glad that seems to be the only problem. Yesterday I went out for the day and when I got home my password wasn't working. #2 fixed it but didn't have time (being in Weymouth and all) to check what else had been affected. Obviously someone got into the database and had a play.
  • I find it hard to believe that would be the only problem. If someone took the effort to get in, they'd change just one byte in a sidebar title (that they wouldn't see unless they were a member...*launch dramatic music riff*)??? I think not. Can we take this discussion to the blog?
  • I for one want to see a picture of this Norris' brutha. Is he to Chucky like something Venom is to Spiderman? Curious minds want to know.
  • Chuck Norris has a blogger brother?
  • *comes back from the bathroom, wipes hands on pants* Who put what in the where now?
  • I imagine other things may turn up at unexpected times. I was expecting worse too. But anyway, yes, to The Blog with this!
  • To the blogmobile!! *waves bye-bye*
  • i got all excited for a second when i was at the top of the page (not realizing it) and thought moneyjane had just posted recently.
  • I miss moneyjane.
  • Methinks Doris has returned! Hmmm, this is very curious to me. I hereby announce my mission: The Great MoFi Egg Hunt! I shall weed through the countless threads, searching for any, and all, perplexing oddities that will surely confound all who stumble upon them. Bid me well... adieu!!
  • *knits balaklava*
  • Ooh! I love Greek pastries.

  • You made me snort my coffee, you Cretan!
  • Edessa that kind of stuff alla time. Athens you just have to deal with it.
  • Herzog and the forms of madness from Roger Ebert's Journal. Plus a comment from Herzog himself.

  • That...that was utterly magnificent and eye-wateringly terrifying in equal measure. Bravo.
  • He can never die, as he said to his son: "Do not be sad, Nanhoi [Nikolai - said to be the only one attending his funeral]. The truth is, I can never die. For I will be in everything and see you in everything and watch over you. I am your reaction in the water of a mountain lake. I am your shadow and I am the light that creates your shadow. I am your fairy tale. Your dream. Your wishes and desires, and I am their fulfillment. I am your thirst and your hunger and your food and your drink...). The truth is, I can never die. For I will be in everything and see you in everything and watch over you. I am your reaction in the water of a mountain lake. I am your shadow and I am the light that creates your shadow. I am your fairy tale. Your dream. Your wishes and desires, and I am their fulfillment. I am your thirst and your hunger and your food and your drink..."
  • *^Referencing Kinsky self-referentially at least, but probably true for Herzog as well*
  • So long as Nastassja Kinski lives, her father lives. In a different way, of course - one of my great movie crushes. And Kinski did the best recreation of Max Schreck's Nosferatu. Must have been crazy to do that so well.
