  1. This man is also an incredibly good actor.
    He was a bright spot in the first Jack Reacher movie.

    He can play a really chillingly evil character.

  2. “It vas during de award ceramony that I realized the vast insignificance human life has in these world. In Burma, I had spoken to cold blooded killers who hunted down and slayn entire families. I thought of Timothy Treadway and how he was devoured by ze savage bears he aimed to protect. And, I thought of the billions of people now who live in poverty and fear across ze globe. And, then here was these event. Men and women worth millions of dollarz, sitting here, clapping and cheering for an old man for no other reason than making films. Their money going nowhere and doing nothing for those in need in these cruel, dark world we live on, flying through a dark, endless void ever closer to our destruction and ultimate fate of nothingness.

    It vas ze happiest moment of my life.”

  4. He once got shot with a bb gun while being interviewed and didn’t even flinch.

    A legend indeed

  5. *This award brings me great misery. But it is the same misery that is all around us. The directors are in misery, the actors are in misery—they don’t act, they just screech in pain. Taking a close look at whats around us, there is some sort of harmony. It is the harmony of overwhelming and collective murder. But when i say this i say this all full of admiration for the film festival. It’s not that i hate it, i love it very much—but i love it against my better judgment.*

    *Thank you.*

  8. For anyone not knowing: you really need to watch his documentary about him and Klaus Kinski (my dearest enemy):

  9. Hopefully this mean Paul F Tompkins brings him back for an episode of Comedy Bang! Bang! soon!!! One of my favorites!

  10. Oh my goodness! I recognized this man from parks and rec! And here I thought he was just an extra with a line.

  11. [I hope he shouts HAPPY NEW YEAR, LOSERS! from the podium.](https://twitter.com/AislinnClarke/status/1080114758618103808?s=09)

  12. I almost hate seeing Werner Herzog’s name in a headline because I’m half expecting him to pass. This man is a treasure and an amazing director. I am very grateful for all the wonderful film he has produced.

  13. Seek out his film “Stroszek” from 1977 if you haven’t seen. It’s hilarious. And strange. I love it!

  14. The first half of the title scared me that he had died.

    One of the great directors of our time.
