It is the first collection in twenty years dedicated to examining Herzog's expansive career, featuring essays by international scholars and Herzog specialists. It addresses a broad spectrum of the director's films, from his earliest works such as "Signs of Life" and "Fata Morgana" to such recent films as "The Bad Lieutenant" and "Encounters at the End of the World" Thereby it offers creative, innovative approaches guided by film history, art history, and philosophy. The book includes a comprehensive filmography that also features a list of the director's acting appearances and opera productions On top of that, it explores the director's engagement with music and the arts, his self-stylization as a global filmmaker, his Bavarian origins, and his love-hate relationship with the actor Klaus Kinski."@en ;
