Win Wenders & Werner Herzog

I am not an advocate of the death penalty. I do not even have an argument; I only have a story, the history of the barbarism of Nazi Germany. The argument that innocent men and women have been executed is, in my opinion, only a secondary one. A State should not be allowed—under any circumstance—to execute anyone for any reason. End of story. — Werner Herzog
I think that’s a great question to have, uh, Werner Herzog complicate. — Robert Downey, Jr. in response to the question, “what makes a great film?” at the 84th Academy Awards
If I abandon this project, I would be a man without dreams. And I don’t want to live like that. I live or I end my life with this project.

Werner Herzog, Burden Of Dreams

“Werner can be, I say can be, a gentle soul. I definitely heard all the stories, and quite enjoyed them, but not once did I feel that things crossed any kind of line. Werner cares a great deal and I think he is driven only by what he believes is necessary to tell a great story.” - Christian Bale

Film is not the art of scholars, but of illiterates. Film culture is not analysis, it is agitation of the mind. — Werner Herzog

Herzog mentioned twice that, in the end, he was happy he decided to participate in the exhibition; however, he brought the Whitney portion of the evening to a close by recounting a telling exchange he had with the curators there: “I don’t go to museums because I do not like art,” he apparently told them, to which they responded, “Yes, but you are an artist.”

“I’m not an artist,” Herzog said. “I’m a soldier.”

A great film is very hard to describe. It’s always mysterious. It sticks to you forever. It never leaves you, and becomes a part of your existence. — Werner Herzog
