Werner Herzog WTF?

You have to love the way one of the most idiosyncratic “arthouse” directors of the 1970’s has transcended culture and geography for critical and popular success in America. I don’t know what to make of his attempt to re-adapt Abel Ferrera’s THE BAD LIEUTENANT with Nicholas Cage, but until AVATAR comes out, this is the craziest trailer of the year. Cage is a mad man. Herzog is a mad man. They should call this THE MAD LIEUTENANT. I’m there.

  1. the funniest part of that preview (and it’s all pretty fucking hilarious if you ask me) is the ‘now in post-production’ note at the end, the perfect little wink at the end of a mad scientist’s chemistry experiment

    I can’t tell if that’s for realz or not…and VAL KILMER!

  3. Can’t wait. Looks like we’re in Vampire’s Kiss territory with Herzog at the helm. Considered in those terms, this thing seems inevitable.

    VAMPIRE’S KISS meets WICKER MAN, I hope…I love how Cage just runs with these wild-eyed manic roles. And has Herzog ever made a “straight” crime genre pic? I hope he has a role in it.
