Newswire: Surprise! Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero made a new movie, Best F(r)iends

12 October 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | | See recent The AV Club news »

Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero are sort of like the outsider-cinema equivalent of Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski—with the roles reversed, of course—so it seems appropriate that Wiseau would riff on the title of Herzog’s 1999 documentary on his tumultuous relationship with Kinski, My Best Fiend, for his big reunion with his The Room star. According to The Hollywood Reporter, which debuted the trailer today, Best F(r)iends was filmed “quietly” over the past two months in L.A. and Canada, and has been kept largely under wraps until now:

Directed by former wedding photographer Gary Fong, Best F(r)iends is based on a story by Sestero inspired by a road trip he and Wiseau took back in 2003. Sestero stars as a man who, after his entire family is killed in a car crash (note the bloodstained shirt), gets picked up off the side ...

‘Lo and Behold’ Exclusive Promo: Werner Herzog Dives Into The Heart of The Internet

19 August 2016 2:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Internet is all around us, connecting humans with each other and providing the world with more information than ever before, but what is its existential impact? How has it changed our worldviews? Director Werner Herzog chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches in his new documentary “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World.” Containing interviews with such luminaries as Bob Kahn, Elon Musk, and Sebastian Thrun, Herzog explores the digital landscape with his trademark curiosity and sparks a number of provocative conversations about how the online world has immeasurably transformed our real world, from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and even our personal relationships. Watch an exclusive promo for the film below.

Werner Herzog: Ecstatic Fictions - A Feature Film Retrospective

3 June 2016 8:05 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Werner Herzog: Ecstatic Fictions, a retrospective dedicated to Werner Herzog's fiction filmmaking, will be running on Mubi in the United States from May 28 - July 29, 2016.My Best Fiend: A metaphor for...something "It’s a great metaphor,” Werner Herzog declares proudly towards the end of My Best Fiend, his autobiographical reflection on fifteen years of cinematic collaboration with actor Klaus Kinski. The metaphor in question is visual. Herzog and film set photographer Beat Presser are looking at a black and white photo hanging in Presser’s apartment. It’s a striking tableau and gripping enough that it would become the poster image for Herzog's 1982 collaboration with Kinski, Fitzcarraldo. The titular character stands in the foreground, yet with his back to the camera. His emotions are unavailable, but he is undoubtedly preoccupied with the 300 ton steamboat high above him at an impossible 90 degree angle, as it disappears up »

Herzog: Ecstatic Truths - A Werner Herzog Documentary Retrospective

31 March 2016 4:07 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Herzog: Ecstatic Truths, a retrospective dedicated to Werner Herzog's documentary work, will be running on Mubi in the United States from March 31 - May 20, 2016. It will be followed by Herzog: Ecstatic Fictions, devoted to the director's fictional features.“The collapse of the stellar universe will occur – like creation – in grandiose splendor."  In white letters sharply defined against a black screen, Blaise Pascal’s famous quote fittingly opens Lessons of Darkness (1992), Werner Herzog’s spectacular documentary about ecological disaster and the Gulf War. I say fittingly because the quote is fake (it was fabricated by Herzog to direct his audience to engage on a very “high level” before the movie even properly begins) and because Lessons of Darkness, for all its profundity, isn’t exactly a true documentary, either. It is, however, exemplary of Herzog's nonfiction style.Werner Herzog’s fame has been focused on his feature-length fiction films since »
