Werner Herzog

I went to hear a true legend of cinema give a lecture last night, at Cadogan Hall - film-maker Werner Herzog.

He previewed clips from just-released 'Cave of Forgotten Dreams', having just gained exclusive (and probably never to be repeated) access to the cave paintings at Chauvet, discussing his use of 'radioactive, mutant albino crocodiles' in the documentary.

Also, much discussion focused on his current project, interviewing death row inmates - tough stuff.

We were left with a clip of Herzog's thoughts on the jungle - a place of 'overwhelming and collective murder'.

Here's the trailer for 'Cave of Forgotten Dreams (3D)'.
