Item description for The Cinema of Werner Herzog: Aesthetic Ecstasy and Truth (Directors' Cuts) by Brad Prager...

Werner Herzog is renowned for pushing the boundaries of conventional cinema, especially those between the fictional and the factual, the fantastic and the real. The Cinema of Werner Herzog: Aesthetic Ecstasy and Truth is the first study in twenty years devoted entirely to an analysis of Herzog's work. It explores the director's continuing search for what he has described as 'ecstatic truth,' drawing on over thirty-five films, from the epics Aguirre: Wrath of God (1972) and Fitzcarraldo (1982) to innovative documentaries like Fata Morgana (1971), Lessons of Darkness (1992), and Grizzly Man (2005). Special attention is paid to Herzog's signature style of cinematic composition, his "romantic" influences, and his fascination with madmen, colonialism, and war.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Cinema of Werner Herzog: Aesthetic Ecstasy and Truth (Directors' Cuts)?

Clear and scholarly  Dec 27, 2007
This book reviews the life and work of German director Werner Herzog. It is clearly written and engaging. I think that both serious Herzog scholars and casual fans would find the book interesting. For instance, he are some of the author's piquant observations about Herzog's film Grizly Man.

"There are similarities between Herzog and Treadwell (and not only in the fact that both men changed their last names)...[Treadwell] also partakes of that same unusual combination of improvisation and staging that characterizes Herzog's documentaries.
