I just finished Aguirre, Wrath of God.  Amazing film.  A gritty yet surreal film about the greed and perseverence of its subjects.  It takes to the extreme the traits that these European explorers had to have to be in such a place.  The film is more about absorbing everything sensually and not cerebrally and yet the film clearly has a particular vision and style.  This is the first Herzog film I've seen but from what I've heard about him, his films seem like they'd be the perfect combination of artistry and unpretentiousness.

From IMDB:
Quote
German director Werner Herzog has hailed Christian Bale one of the greatest actors of his time. The pair worked together on prisoner-of-war thriller Rescue Dawn, but the 63-year-old film-maker insists he spotted Bale's prodigious talent long before they met on set. Herzog says, "I find him one of the greatest talents of his generation. We made up our own minds long before he did Batman." In the film, based on true events, Bale's character gets shot down over Laos during the Vietnam War and must hatch an escape plan when he is captured and tortured.

so i wasnt planning on meeting herzog til tomorrow but while watching High School before the Q and A with Fred Wiseman i looked to my right after hearing a familiar voice say "excuse me" to someone, and it was werner himself, two seats away.....i didnt approach him, i will tomorrow with my copy of land of silence and darkness...but i was at the reception afterwards so was he (wiseman unfortunately skipped it) and he ate alot of these crabcakes they were handing out, acting surprisingly friendly with everyone, even a few iffy lookin characters...anyways, ill come back tomorrow with what he says at the cnference and whatnot, but yeah I had a fun day - and it's my birthday!  worked out well

EDIT

saw herzog again tonight, this time i approached him, copy of LOSAD ready...he shook my hand and seemed rather pleased when he saw what dvd he was to sign for me, he said "this is a great film.  truly my favorite of them all.  i have a very deep love for this film." and i told him what i thought of it and he said "thank you so much for buying it, it means i get paid!".  the conference was cool too, some woman from nyu was there along with the guy who made tarnation, jonathan caouette, who was very friendly and approachable.  herzog talked about his excitement over cell phone video devices and how he believes a new aesthetic will emerge because of it, and he is eagerly waiting to see the first movies arise.  and frederick wiseman sat a row behind me.  terrific night.

I was there too.  I had a cane because I had vertigo.  We drove 3 hours to the talk.  He shook my hand and for the first time in my life, I was speechless and I was almost like floored.  I just mumbled something unintelligeble and he smiled.  then earlier today I was at a record store in amherst when my friend Alissa spotted him going to lunch at some place and she tried her darndest to stall him while my buddy Ray ran to get me at the record store, but it was to no avail, he smiled at me from a distance and went to chow his meat.  so I was a little heartbroken.  my entire weekend consisted of partying and jamming and dancing and that talk, and not having a meaningful encounter with Herzog at that moment was just a cold shower.  I guess I'll have to work really hard now, to make a solid movie of some sort so I could meet him some day as somebody.
jonathan couette was just not on the same level as the other two filmmakers, and the moderator was a poop.
SO HEARTBROKEN.
