Film is a lying media. Cows remember.
Do you like to impersonate Werner Herzog at home? Sure you do. How about
"Man on wire"
? That's fun too. Well, here’s
Herzog + Petit.
Two heroes of mine, and tons of fun to impersonate.

If you haven't seen "Man on Wire," yet, do.
I second that. High entertainment!
It's a testament that Werner Herzog and the Frenchman Philippe Petit are such close friends, since Werner will only speak French when forced
at gun point
. Does this mean that
the great auteur is hypersensitive?
After seeing him actually GET shot,
I'd say not
. Plus, a man who keeps his word
even to jump onto a cactus, or to eat his own shoe
may as well take up tight rope walking next!
MonkeyFilter: Werner Herzog never liked a coward!
Did I do that right, bluehorse?
Well done, Dan!!
It's always good to see our heroes from outside their myths.
Criterion has Les Blank's and Maureen Gosling's
"Burden of dreams."
