Reviews and Festivals
"Might be a worthwhile addition for collections with a focus on filmmaking, film history, and documentary films."

"A must see for Herzog fans"
"A stunning documentary film"
"For students of film, it's fascinating to see Herzog interact with actors of the calibre of Willem Dafoe, Michael Shannon and Chloe Sevigny, to see how he literally conducts a cast, manoeuvres a camera, orchestrates his actors, has a film hold its breath, or how he adapts a script for the physical place he finds himself in...there's real filmmaking insight to be found."

"Enjoyable and insightful. Anyone who loves Werner's films and interested in cinema, thinking, and creation will love this"
— Ramin Bahrani, filmmaker
"This is an amazing look at Werner Herzog by his longtime collaborator"
"An intimate portrait of Werner Herzog making My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done...exploring some of the deepest themes of his films."
