Shout! will be releasing titles chiefly from Herzog's 70s and '80s back catalog, when the Bavaria-born director was still largely working in German (if not necessarily in Germany, jungles feature pretty heavily in some of these pictures), and their list includes both documentaries, shorts and feature films.Per the official announcement, these “include Fitzcarraldo, Aguirre: The Wrath Of God, Nosferatu The Vampyre, The Enigma Of Kaspar Hauser, Woyzeck, Heart Of Glass, Cobra Verde, Stroszek, Fata Morgana, Little Dieter Needs To Fly, Lessons Of Darkness, Ballad Of The Little Soldier, Land Of Silence And Darkness as well as several other acclaimed titles."

14 July 2013 2:16 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following are some supplemental sections featuring notable director & actor teams that did not meet the criteria for the main body of the article.  Some will argue that a number of these should have been included in the primary section but keep in mind that film writing on any level, from the casual to the academic, is a game of knowledge and perception filtered through personal taste.

Other Collaborations:  Action of the Tiger (1957), Dr. No (1962), Thunderball (1965).

Aguirre: The Wrath of God – review

6 June 2013 4:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Werner Herzog's 1972 film starring Klaus Kinski as a 16th-century Spanish conquistador looks more magnificent and mad than ever

Werner Herzog's Aguirre: The Wrath of God (1972) was last rereleased here more than 10 years ago; now, with a new restoration, the sound of gobs being smacked will resound in British cinemas once again. It looks more magnificent and mad than ever, one of the great folies de grandeur of 1970s cinema, an expeditionary Conradian nightmare like Coppola's Apocalypse Now. Just as for that film, the agonies of its production history have entered into legend, almost equivalent to the movie fiction itself. (Herzog's 1999 documentary My Best Fiend, about his leading man Klaus Kinski, tells the incredible story of the insanely dangerous shooting conditions and near-murderous rows between director and star.) It is based loosely on the true story of 16th-century conquistador Lupe De Aguirre (Kinski), the second-in-command of a Spanish force »

Werner Herzog directs 'don't text and drive' public safety advert

German film-maker's television campaign features boy paralysed after being hit by texting driver

The eminent German film director Werner Herzog recently starred as a sinister villain in Tom Cruise thriller Jack Reacher, reminding us he's as adept in front of the camera as he is behind it. Now, yet another unheralded string to the film-maker's bow has emerged: Herzog has delivered a public-safety advertisement in the Us about the dangers of texting and driving.

Phone company At&T's "It Can Wait" campaign urges viewers to put down their phones until they are safely parked and off the road. Herzog's instalment features the mother of a young boy, Xzavier, who is now paralysed after being hit by a driver who had been texting their partner with the words "I'm on my way". She asks: "Was the text that important? That would be my question for her," as the camera reveals her son's debilitated condition. »

How Many of the Movies from Roger Ebert's List of Great Movies Have You Seen?

10 April 2013 4:28 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I've mentioned before how several years ago I created a list using Roger Ebert's Great Movies, Oscar Best Picture winners, IMDb's Top 250, etc. and began going through them doing my best to see as many of the films on these lists that I had not seen as I possibly could to up my film I.Q. Well, someone has gone through the exhaustive effort to take all of the films Roger Ebert wrote about in his three "Great Movies" books, all of which are compiled on his website and added them to a Letterbxd list and I've added that list below. I'm not positive every movie on his list is here, but by my count there are 363 different titles listed (more if you count the trilogies, the Up docs and Decalogue) and of those 363, I have personally seen 229 and have added an * next to those I've seen. Clearly I have some work to do, »

Werner Herzog on Roger Ebert, 'the good soldier of cinema' -- Exclusive

4 April 2013 6:14 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

During over four decades of writing film reviews, Roger Ebert, who died at age 70 on Thursday, had a continually keen eye for blossoming talent, picking out directors like Martin Scorsese as ones to watch from their very first films, and he found plenty of filmmakers worthy of “two thumbs up” throughout his career. But one filmmaker whose work he championed with particular enthusiasm over the years was Werner Herzog.

The German director’s work — exotic films that blend the surreal with the real, fiction with non-fiction — includes the acclaimed documentaries Grizzly Man and Little Dieter Needs to Fly and the »

First Pic: Eli Roth's "The Green Inferno"

11 February 2013 6:55 AM, PST | Fangoria | See recent Fangoria news »

The Green Inferno, Eli Roth’s first feature since the undervalued Hostel: Part II seems, at first glance, a cannibal-style Italian horror-esque throwback, a sentiment the crowding nature of its first look and its synopsis (…follows an idealistic student and a group of naive do-gooders who are captured by cannibalistic Indios after their plane crash lands in the Peruvian jungle) would do little to dispel. As the filmmaker makes rounds discussing his producing role on the upcoming The Last Exorcism Part II however, he’s distancing himself from the idea of homage.

Roth told Fangoria matter-of-factly, “Nobody has any idea what I’m doing with Green Inferno. It’s not going to be a Mondo cannibal film.” Later, and over at Empire he lauded Ruggero Deodato's classic of cannibal films, Cannibal Holocaust, while explaining, “…I really wanted to do something that was much more like a Werner Herzog movie. »

Daughter Accuses Late German Actor Klaus Kinski of Sexual Abuse

12 January 2013 11:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Pola Kinski, daughter of long-dead German leading man Klaus Kinski, who rose to prominence with such Werner Herzog titles as Nosferatu the Vampyre and Aguirre: The Wrath of God, reveals in her new memoir that her father molested her from the age of 5 until she was 19. "When I said 'I don't want to,' he didn't care," she recently told German newsweekly Stern. "He simply took what he wanted." She added that she wrote the book mostly because she got sick of hearing Germans and members of the film community refer to Kinski as a genius. "I couldn't listen to it anymore," she explained. Fair enough. »
