Ridley Scott interview: Blade Runner 2049, Alien and more

Ryan Lambie Oct 2, 2017

We talk to director Ridley Scott about Blade Runner 2049, the lasting influence of the 1982 original, ancient aliens, flutes, and more...

It's mid-September, and a rug-thick layer of secrecy lies over Blade Runner 2049, the belated sequel to Ridley Scott's 1982 classic. Before our interview with Scott, who executive produces, we're shown approximately half an hour of footage: Ryan Gosling trudging moodily through futuristic landscapes as a new Replicant hunter, K; glimpses of Jared Leto as a new creator of artificial life, named Niander Wallace.

Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival), Blade Runner 2049 looks spectacular, with the same measured, ethereal pace that made the original film such a masterpiece. Exactly what K's mission is - and how it ties

Time To Ponder Cinematic Pre-History: Exactly What Is A Solutrean?

Time To Ponder Cinematic Pre-History: Exactly What Is A Solutrean?
So exactly what is a Solutrean? With the possible September 15 release date of Albert Hughes' The Solutrean approaching — late summer/early fall plans are still in flux across Hollywood — it's worth pausing to ponder the historical, or rather pre-historical, context of a film that promises to combine the chilly solitude of The Revenant with the mysterious antiquity of Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams and a proposed title as challenging as any since Comancheria…

Salt And Fire Review

There ain’t no party like a Werner Herzog party. His latest, Salt and Fire, feels like a mashup of his current preoccupations – combining philosophical volcanology (Into the Inferno and Encounters at the End of the World), ecological apocalypticism (Lessons of Darkness), historical/cultural analysis (Cave of Forgotten Dreams), and his penchant for having very intense men delivering very cryptic dialogue (basically everything he’s ever done).

The narrative centres on a team of scientists travelling to Chile to deliver a report on an ongoing ecological disaster. They’re Professor Laura Sommerfeld (Veronica Ferres), Doctor Cavani (Gael Garcia Bernal), and Doctor Meier (Volker Michalowski), who are on a Un mission and are expecting to be met by government officials once they land.

Unfortunately for them, they’re actually met by a team of black-clad paramilitary soldiers who kidnap them and whisk them away to an isolated villa. They’re led

Werner Herzog: The Art of Being a Death-Defying, Gonzo Filmmaking Genius

Werner Herzog: The Art of Being a Death-Defying, Gonzo Filmmaking Genius
Dan Winters for Rolling Stone

Not far from the big round dome atop the Griffith Observatory, leaning on a railing that overlooks the Greater Los Angeles sinkhole, the German director Werner Herzog, 74, removes a tissue from his pocket and dabs at his eyes. His eyes are leaking. They've been leaking for the past hour or so. The tear fluid builds up in the corner of one of his blue eyes, then starts to cascade down his cheeks, halted only when he dab, dab, dabs.

He does not explain this. In fact,

Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World documentary review: digital crazy quilt

MaryAnn’s quick take… Skips away every time it seems like it’s about to delve deeply into something odd and fascinating. Feels like teases from a slew of other Herzog films. I’m “biast” (pro): adore Werner Herzog; huge Internet nerd

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I love Werner Herzog. I love his unique perspective on the world. I love how, in the opening moments of Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World — his stream-of-consciousness documentary look at the Internet, what it hath wrought, and what it may yet bring — he chooses to describe as “repulsive” the university corridor that leads to the room where the very first computer on the Internet still stands today. (That’s the machine pictured above, with Internet pioneer Leonard Kleinrock. That node of the Net is no longer active. Kleinrock is still a prof at UCLA.

XLrator Media Acquires Werner Herzog’s Salt And Fire; Release Coming Spring 2017

XLrator Media, known for putting out some excellent genre titles and films that tend to be somewhat outside of the box, have acquired filmmaking legend Werner Herzog’s new film Salt And Fire. The film, an Eco-thriller starring Michael Shannon, Veronica Ferres & Gael Garcia Bernal is targeted for a spring 2017 release and from the press release we were sent, sounds like quite the film. Read on for additional info!

Written and directed by Werner Herzog inspired by a story by Tom Bissell, Salt And Fire tells the story of a corporate CEO and a group of scientists who must band together despite their ideological differences to try to avoid a looming environmental catastrophe. The film was shot in Bolivia at the stunning Uyuni salt flats (the world’s largest) and Germany. The film was produced by Nina Maag, Werner Herzog, Michael Benaroya and Pablo Cruz.

Telluride Film Review: ‘Into the Inferno’

Telluride Film Review: ‘Into the Inferno’
Werner Herzog plus volcanoes. That combo alone should be enough to attract the intrepid filmmaker’s fan base to “Into the Inferno,” another expeditionary documentary from the director whose adventures have taken him from Alaska (“Grizzly Man”) to the Amazon (“Fitzcarraldo”), from distant prehistory (“Cave of Forgotten Dreams”) to outer space (“The Wide Blue Yonder”). Here, the globe-trotting continues, this time with the vaguely defined goal of trying to ponder the spiritual aspect of volcanoes from as close to the fuming magma as possible — and yet, much of what Herzog finds has an overly familiar feel, as if he is excavating his own past as much as that of the civilizations living at the feet of these volatile sites, and the results are considerably less explosive than one might hope or expect from this Netflix release.

Among the “Encounters at the End of the World” described in Herzog’s 2007 Antarctica

James Franco’s Movie Column: What Werner Herzog’s Documentaries Teach Us About Humanity

James Franco’s Movie Column: What Werner Herzog’s Documentaries Teach Us About Humanity
James + Semaj is a column where James Franco talks to his reverse self, Semaj, about new films. Rather than a conventional review, it is place where James and Semaj can muse about ideas that the films provoke. James loves going to the movies and talking about them. But a one-sided take on a movie, in print, might be misconstrued as a review. As someone in the industry it could be detrimental to James’s career if he were to review his peers, because unlike the book industry—where writers review other writer’s books—the film industry is highly collaborative, and a bad review of a peer could create problems. So, assume that James (and Semaj) love all these films. What they’re interested in talking about is all the ways the films inspire them, and make them think. James is me, and Semaj is the other side of me.

Arthouse Audit: Natalie Portman’s ‘A Tale of Love and Darkness’ Tops Limited Openers
Late August is not prime release time for top-end specialized films. While the quality of new entries this week is better than usual, two Sundance premieres, A24’s “Morris from America” and Werner Herzog’s documentary “Lo and Behold” are also hitting prime exposure on Video on Demand.

The best limited theatrical opening went to rookie director Natalie Portman’s “A Tale of Love and Darkness” (Focus), shot in her native Israel. The breakout of the month is CBS Films’ second-week expanding “Hell or High Water” (Lionsgate), which looks headed for Top Ten-level grosses over upcoming weeks.


A Tale of Love and Darkness” (Focus World) – Metacritic: 55; Festivals include: Cannes, Toronto 2015

$36,000 in 2 theaters; PTA (per theater average): $18,000

Doc Corner: Werner Herzog's 'Lo and Behold'

Glenn here. Each Tuesday bringing you reviews of documentaries from theatres, festivals and on demand.

The indefatigable German director Werner Herzog is an unlikely superstar of the modern age – a man responsible for some of the most singular cinematic visions of our time who has remodelled himself over the last two decades primarily as a documentarian. A filmmaker with a unique verbosity who can devour a metaphor and roll it across his tongue like he was twisting a cherry stem. His accent frequently inciting giggles when paired with subject matter that many feel is outside of the wheelhouse of a 73-year-old man like albino crocodiles, Kanye West, Pokemon, or as in the case of his latest film, Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World, the internet at large.

I confess that sometimes I struggle with Herzog’s need to narrate all of his documentaries himself. No doubt spurred on

10 Ecstatic Truths from Werner Herzog’s ‘Wtf with Marc Maron’ Interview

10 Ecstatic Truths from Werner Herzog’s ‘Wtf with Marc Maron’ Interview
Occasioned by the release of his internet documentary “Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World” this week, Werner Herzog made an appearance on Marc Maron’s “Wtf” podcast. The interview was typically insightful, strange and humorous in the way that only Herzog can be, with 10 ecstatic truths emerging as especially noteworthy:

The last thing he read was an obscure historian from Greek antiquity, because of course it was.

Herzog calls the saga he read as a “soap-opera story” about Alexander the Great’s father, though the historian in question is “a fairly unintelligent writer.”

Surprisingly, he rarely dreams.

The filmmaker says he dreams “maybe once in a year.” In the last dream he remembers, Herzog was being pursued in Mexico “by God knows what” and gets knocked down. A priest then came to pick him up, shook him and asked him, “Do you believe in the forces of evil?

Watch: Antonio Banderas Uncovers History in 'Finding Altamira' Trailer

"Perhaps all of our ideas are wrong?" Samuel Goldwyn has unveiled an official trailer for the film Finding Altamira, starring Antonio Banderas as Spanish archaeologist Marcelino. Back in 1879, Marcelino and his daughter Maria (played by Allegra Allen) discovered the now-famous cave called Altamira in northern Spain. The cave contains paintings of running bison that date back over 10,000 years. At the time, this discovery made him the target of the Catholic Church since no one could believe it was possible humans were alive back then. This isn't the same cave that Werner Herzog visits in Cave of Forgotten Dreams, but it's similar, and it's cool to see a feature film told around the initial discovery of one of these caves. The full cast includes Golshifteh Farahani, Rupert Everett, Pierre Niney, and Clement Sibony. Take a look. Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Hugh Hudson's Finding Altamira, direct from YouTube: In

Werner Herzog’s Way of Life: How He Makes a Living and Why He Teaches Filmmaking

Werner Herzog’s Way of Life: How He Makes a Living and Why He Teaches Filmmaking
Werner Herzog is not your average film school teacher. A self-taught director, his globe-trotting adventures and chaotic man-versus-nature dramas are not the easiest projects to transform into a curriculum, but that hasn’t stopped him from giving it a shot.

Whether it’s through his Rogue Film School or, most recently, as one of the A-list instructors featured on online learning empire MasterClass, Herzog has no interest in teaching the technical elements of moviemaking. The German-born filmmaker, whose career includes epics like “Fitzcarraldo” as well as idiosyncratic documentaries such as “Cave of Forgotten Dreams” wants to create what he calls “soldiers of cinema,” and the path to victory can be stoking his students’ appetites for experiencing life.
