1. “Someone like Jean-Luc Godard is for me intellectual counterfeit money when compared to a good kung fu film.”
    -Werner Herzog

  2. Herzog on Spielberg:

    “Spielberg is a great storyteller — do not forget that, do not overlook that. He deserves the position he is in, because he has understood something more than many others who are just into the fireworks of big special effects. He is the one who weaves them in very coherent, very good stories. He’s a storyteller more than anyone else, and we have a deficit of storytelling in cinema nowadays. It’s not only in the United States; it’s a worldwide sort of event, because audiences look more for stardom, they look more for special effects. And we don’t have stories like, let’s say, ‘Casablanca’ or ‘The Treasure of the Sierra Madre’ — the great storytelling that doesn’t need big effects, that stays in our hearts forever. Spielberg is one of those who understands it.”
