Ebert on Herzog

I’ve often thought that preachers should read the Bible the way Roger Ebert watched (and preach the way Ebert wrote about) films.

I’ve also often thought Werner Herzog was among the greatest artists of our time.  Watch Grizzly Man.  Watch Into the Abyss.  Tell me I’m wrong; this is film as poetry, film that shakes and inspires and terrifies not by manipulation or by tricks, but simply by watching.  (Not that Herzog is an objective or disinterested observer.)

RoberEbert.com has published an overview of Ebert’s reviews of Herzog.  Read it, follow the links, check out the incredible movies, be moved and inspired and terrified by the simple beauty of it.
