“I don’t watch films,” Werner Herzog has said. “People always believe that a filmmaker would have seen hundreds or thousands of films […] I don’t. I see about three films per year.” Instead, he’s more of a reader: “There is practically no day where I do not read. I’m not out for inspiration, I’m just interested in certain things.”
Werner Herzog is one of the most prolific and influential filmmakers of all time: these 10 movies are some sleeper favorites of his.
