* ''Film/IncidentAtLochNess'' (2004)



* AdamWesting[=/=]TheCameo: Herzog has a number of acting credits and is often playing either a parody of himself, such as in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' and ''Incident at Loch Ness'', or using his very unique voice to play a very serious character [[MetaCasting saying totally]] [[PlayingAgainstType ridiculous things.]] [[invoked]]

* CentralTheme: To mainly look at the beauty and poetry of life and human nature.



* HumansAreBastards: Relentlessly examined in his work. His bastards usually have layers, but they're still bastards.



* SlidingScaleOfCynicismVersusIdealism: From idealistic ''Fitzcarraldo'' to cynical ''Aguirre, the Wrath of God''. Just comparing ''The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser'' to ''Film/{{Stroszek}}'' can cause whiplash.

* WithFriendsLikeThese: His well-known friendship with Creator/KlausKinski was..."rocky" would be an understatement. Herzog made a film about their relationship entitled, appropriately, ''My Best Fiend''.

Werner Herzog (born 1942 in UsefulNotes/{{Munich}}) is a German movie director who has emerged as the most successful of the German New Wave filmmakers. A man beloved on the Art House circuit and with several mainstream successes under his belt, most notably with actor Creator/KlausKinski. His films, both fictional and documentary, are often slow and atmospheric, but are universally beautiful and human. Really, his films only have one subject - the infinite power of human will and the subsequent potential for self-destruction.
