Werner Herzog is one of the wildest, most unique and greatest directors working today.

Many of his films focus on monomaniacal wild-men, seeking one aim at the cost of all else - and that is true in his documentaries like Grizzly Man and Little Dieter Needs to Fly as much as in movies like Bad Lieutenant and Aguirre: Wrath of God.

And it isn't just his characters who have crazy stories. Herzog himself has literally eaten his shoe on stage, pulled Joaquin Phoenix from a car wreck and been shot in the stomach during an interview.

And now there is a limited edition release (only 5,000 copies) of many of Herzog's best known movies, most of which are making their debut on blu-ray. Including movies like Even Dwarfs Started Small, Aguirre, the Wrath of God, Nosferatu the Vampyre, Fitzcarraldo, Little Dieter Needs to Fly and My Best Fiend this collection will be sought out by many Herzog fans.

And if you can't get enough of Werner Herzog - here is a two-hour talk he gave at the University of California.
