Portrait Werner Herzog (1986)

*** (out of 4)

Werner Herzog documentary about himself. Herzog narrates the film where he talks about his early childhood, his love of walking and his love of making movies. We get to see clips from various films including Signs of Life, Aguirre, the Wrath of God and Fitzcarraldo among others. The most interesting thing in the film is hearing Herzog talking about his love of walking and how one time he walked from Munich to Paris. He also claims that most of his movie ideas come during these walks. There's really nothing too groundbreaking here and we don't really learn a whole lot but what's here is interesting if you're a fan of the director.
