Herzog’s notebook

Post Comment

I watched a documentary over the weekend that German filmmaker Werner Herzog made about his relationship with the actor Klaus Kinski. To call the relationship tempestuous would be an understatement, and it’s a remarkable thing to watch. (For a brief glimpse, check out the trailer on YouTube.)

Also remarkable was a scene with actress Claudia Cardinale, who recalled, among other things, the notebook Herzog carried with him while they filming Fitzcarraldo. Kinski was suspicious of it, because, as Cardinale pointed out, it didn’t concern him, and he never knew what Herzog was writing. Of course, neither did anybody else, because — talk about tiny writing! Just get a load of the screenshot above and try to decipher the text.

  1. think the city saw that they could get a world class architect with a cotisoverrnal design (even better) and not have to pay anything themselves. If this Norwegian investor has the cash then the city has gone for the scheme over any reservations it has for the design. I’m pretty ambivalent about the scheme and a little disappointed about it in its current guise, I wish it was either more polite to it’s neighbours or alot less!I guess we are all biting our lips to see how it goes.

  2. Wow, I thought I had small handwriting, but that makes mine look huge! It gives me a headache just thinking about trying to read through a page or two of that.
