    It’s funny that you chose that part of the film, when the part about crucifying the monkey is much better. You can watch it here and even get some jpg stills:

    Curiously, the sound seems post hoc.

    Reminds me of Val Kilmer in Top Secret; “I know a little German. He’s sitting over there!”

    It was Stroszek that Curtis watched before his final swing, a much more depressing movie than Even dwarves….

    Ian Curtis of the band Joy Division was playing this movie when he hung himself supposedly.

    As I recall, Ian Curtis was watching a different Herzog movie – Strozek – when he gone done himself in.
    The ending of the film (which would certainly make anyone contemplate the great hereafter) can be found below.

    So does anybody else think that guy looks a lot like Mickey Rooney?

    Man this is a great movie. My wife and I watched it last year at the recommendation of her professor, and we both really enjoyed it. Kind of disturbing and oddly beautiful at the same time.

    Even Dwarfs Started Small is pretty out there even for Herzog. Real animals are really hurt in the movie, so by the time you get to the camel you’re just about sick, though apparently it wasn’t actually harmed. I saw Herzog speak at Ebertfest this year (where they showed Stroszek, which was the movie Ian Curtis allegedly watched before killing himself) and he seems like a sweet guy, which makes his movies even stranger.

    More Werner Herzog posts please. Here’s something to get you thinking:

    “Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe”

    It is a pretty weird movie. I found the monkey-crucification scene really disturbing and strangely touching.
