Werner Herzog

Did anyone else see the remarkable interview with Werner Herzog on the Culture Show about his new film, Grizzly Man. He has made a documentary following people who are fanatical about things to the point of death, and then died, including a guy who was eaten by grizzly bears, along with his girlfriend. The incident was recorded on his camera with the lens cap on.

During the interview Herzog was shot, and carried on as if nothing had happened. He said, and I almost believed him, 'I genuinely am not scared of anything.' Really. Mark Kemode was almost speechless; not good in an interviewer. He shows the bullet wound he has been ignoring throughout the interview. Catch the repeat.
