Fata Morgana (1971)


Herzog has produced works of genius. That’s because he has incredibly trustworthy cinematic intuition, believes in forces that called be charmed forth and is unafraid to take deep risks in his quest.

He also has some interesting things to say about his work. But I advise you to not listen to what he has to say because the subtlety and depth of his work is greater than his conscious insights.

A man like this constantly works/ Some of his output is well formed, others just notebooks. This is the latter. It still has moments of wonder but the scope is very local. This is a collection of short form studies. During this period, he was also writing journals, several hundred pages of cinematic notes. Next years “Wrath” was where these ideas were coherently shaped.
