New Year’s Resolutions with Werner Herzog

Good interview with the always intriguing Werner Herzog. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

I couldn’t take it any longer. I grabbed a microphone and said, “I’m no fly on the wall. I am the hornet that stings.” There was an immediate uproar, so not having anything more to say, I shouted out, “Happy New Year, losers.” And that was that."


 “Those who read own the world. Those who watch television lose it.”
