9780571259779: Werner Herzog - A Guide for the Perplexed: Conversations with Paul Cronin

This edition of Herzog on Herzog presents a completely new set of interviews in which Werner Herzog discusses his career from its very beginnings to his most recent productions.

Herzog was once hailed by Francois Truffaut as the most important director alive. Famous for his frequent collaborations with mercurial actor Klaus Kinski - including the epics Aguirre, the Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo, and the terrifying Nosferatu - and more recently with documentaries such as Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams and Into the Abyss, Herzog has built a body of work that is one of the most vital in post-war German cinema.

Recensione:

[A] magnificent volume of interviews ... this book presents an opportunity to enjoy extended musings from one of the most fascinating minds to which we are fortunate enough to have collective access ... Reading [Herzog] expounding on his myriad interests and obsessions, in tones that are full and fluent without ever crossing into pretentiousness or obscurity, is a tonic for the brain ... this book's vast bulk is indispensable. There's so much in it that it could be stocked in almost every aisle of the bookshop, including - such is its assault on cynicism and lethargy - the self-help aisle. (Hannah McGill Independent 2014-08-16)

[T]he heftiest and most fascinating one-stop guide that the Herzog fan, or even newcomer, could possibly ask for. ( Sunday Telegraph)

[O]ne of the best things published about cinema ... so expansive, detailed and thought-provoking that it feels like more than a book. I can think of ten ways to use it. First, as a home film school ... as a life manual ... as a piece in a cultural jigsaw ... as a 'how not to' ... to make you laugh ... as a warning against professional hubris ... in learning how to interview ... as a surrogate life ... as pure literature ... as inspiration. ( Sight & Sound)

A Guide for the Perplexed will remind lapsed fans why they so loved [Herzog's] films... Part of what makes A Guide for the Perplexed so extraordinary is that Herzog seems to recall, in detail, everything that has ever happened in the course of his dramatic life ... The book is so full of marvellous passages that one could go on quoting forever ... What is remarkable about A Guide for the Perplexed - what makes it the sort of book you want to give to friends - is the access it provides to the furious inner excitement of one of the great artists (whether he likes the term or not) of our time. ( Prospect)

[A Guide for the Perplexed] deserves to reach a general readership ... [it] is one of the best, the most inspirational and definitely the most unusual guides to filmmaking ever written ... Just about anyone who wishes to follow an art or craft or trade or passion can learn from this book. ( Literary Review)

Featuring poems and essays, contributions from Harmony Korine and editor Herbert Golder and dozens of photos, it's a beautiful book about a beautiful man. ( Total Film)

An astonishing book, so rich and weird and compelling that the ideal review would consist entirely of quotes from it. ( Sunday Business Post)

An opportunity to uncover gems of insight and moments of madness. ( The Skinny)

[A] blockbuster performance of telling and hiding: remembering, denying, cursing, reliving traumas and triumph; picking over all the projects, triumphant and forgotten. This much revised and updated version of the one published in 2002 is an invaluable guide to a hard-fought life and career. It is a black bible of verbiage, controlled rants and recollections, fit to stand beside any of the wandering director's savage pilgrimages. ( Times Literary Supplement)

Descrizione libro Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. An invaluable set of career-length interviews with the German genius hailed by François Truffaut as "the most important film director alive"Most of what we've heard about Werner Herzog is untrue. The sheer number of false rumors and downright lies disseminated about the man and his films is truly astonishing. Yet Herzog's body of work is one of the most important in postwar European cinema.His international breakthrough came in 1973 with Aguirre, the Wrath of God, in which Klaus Kinski played a crazed Conquistador. For The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, Herzog cast in the lead a man who had spent most of his life institutionalized, and two years later he hypnotized his entire cast to make Heart of Glass. He rushed to an explosive volcanic Caribbean island to filmLa Soufrière, paid homage to F. W. Murnau in a terrifying remake of Nosferatu, and in 1982 dragged a boat over a mountain in the Amazon jungle forFitzcarraldo. More recently, Herzog has made extraordinary "documentary" films, such asLittle Dieter Needs to Fly. His place in cinema history is assured, and Paul Cronin's volume of dialogues provides a forum for Herzog's fascinating views on the things, ideas, and people that have preoccupied him for so many years.This revised edition features new interviews discussing Herzog's films up to From One Second to the Next (2013), as well as additional text from Herzog, his collaborator Herbert Golder, the physicist Lawrence Krauss, and the filmmaker Harmony Korine.
