  1. Illusion Travels By Streetcar's rating of the film Portrait Werner Herzog

    "I don't think so, because he's the one saying the CIA tactics remind him of Nazi Germany."

  2. anarresti's rating of the film Portrait Werner Herzog

    And he also pointed the camera at himself. He also had the courage to ask himself questions, to look in the mirror, to avoid the easy mythmaking temptation to be just a shadow, an idea, a persona. Here he is, telling a story about the storyteller. So that from that moment on, no bulshit would be possible.

  3. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film Portrait Werner Herzog

    Mientras que el gentío alemán se aglomera durante una reconocida celebración, Herzog se refugia en su lugar solitario. Ahí piensa en su próximo proyecto, recuerda su pasado y repasa su filmografía. Las temáticas, constantes y filias que se ha visto hasta ese entonces del director, son nada más y nada menos que un retrato de su propia biografía. Su cine es como él, sobre solitarios, románticos, aventureros, fatalistas

  4. suede's rating of the film Portrait Werner Herzog

    I can deeply relate to Werner's affection for his Bavarian homeplace. Am growing increasingly impatient, however, with his delusions of grandeur. Ultimately, it is himself who is his favourite Romantic hero. Regardless of that, for those with prior knowledge of Herzog's life and work, this short doc is a highly entertaining connector of dots.

  5. Tom Cottey's rating of the film Portrait Werner Herzog

    Hugely entertaining, if slightly bizarre documentary by Werner Herzog about... himself.
