FILM Werner Hertzog’s Rogue film school

Werner Herzog’s Rogue Film School

A publicity clip of a few mins, in which he mentions the way film-makers read a lot. And that if you don’t read you will never make a film-maker. And that Scorsese’s got a librarian. Good reason to get stinking rich, that.

Obviously, you can read a lot and not be a film-maker, but we know what he means. Which is unexpected, if not strange, because you would think visual people get visual ideas from visuals, like other films. Well of course they do, too. Quite a few film-makers of note have written of spending all day watching films in their youth: Truffault and Godard come to mind. And Spielberg.
