Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe

Why? He is a man of his word, he is. And he is crazy.

Herzog has some good flicks under his belt, but I'll take his commentaries over his films any day of the week. Shoe is passable -- a story like this is the stuff of artiste legend, but I think it would be better served if the footage did not exist. Herzog lives as he speaks, I don't think anybody can deny him that. His pines for adequate poetic imagery are certainly realized here in spite of the fact he isn't even behind the camera.

Almost as good as when Al Gore had to eat an oversided cowboy hat.

Bigger than an normal sized cowboy hat.
