Errol Morris and Werner Herzog

A conversation in the new Believer between two personal heroes: Errol Morris and Werner Herzog. So many great parts, but you MUST READ the part about the "falling out" they had years ago over Ed Gein's mother's grave.

great link, rex. thanks.

"It has a beautiful end with a dancing chicken, and I really like it."

this reminds me of David Foster Wallace's question, "What is Lynchian?"

in this case, that quote answers the question, "What is Herzogian?" someone saying "it has a beautiful end with a dancing chicken. i really like it" is not in itself Herzogian. what makes it Herzogian is that he said it of his own film.
