Synopsis

He has taken his camera to parts of the world no other director would dare go, and told stories in ways no one had ever considered. These sixteen masterpieces, which blur the line between "fiction" and "documentary," illustrate why Werner Herzog is the most daring, visionary and dangerous filmmaker of our lifetime -- the director that both Milos Forman and Francois Truffaut have called "the greatest filmmaker alive today."

This deluxe set includes, for the first time on Blu-Ray:

EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL

LAND OF SILENCE AND DARKNESS

FATA MORGANA

AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD

THE ENIGMA OF KASPAR HAUSER

HEART OF GLASS

NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE

FITZCARRALDO

BALLAD OF THE LITTLE SOLDIER

WHERE THE GREEN ANTS DREAM

Why We Love It

“One of the most impressive Blu-ray sets of the year… the films here are among the best and most significant of the 1970s and 1980s.” – Los Angeles Times

“It’s no surprise that the kings of cool, Shout! Factory, decided to get into the Werner Herzog business. The legend of cinema has managed to also make himself into a very cool, cult figure through his engaging documentaries, quirky fiction films, and his mesmerizing, accented voiceover narration. It’s also no surprise that the collaboration between Herzog and Shout! Factory is nothing short of absolutely fantastic… Run to the store for this one, cinephiles.” – Parade

“This has been a dream to go through! He’s the filmmaker I’d love to have making films forever. I just don’t want a world without his commentary and vision. This isn’t everything, he’s done… not by a long shot… but these are definitely some of his best work. Herzog is the heart of cinema and all that means.” – Harry Knowles, Ain’t It Cool News

“These early works pulse with energy and strangeness, charm and power, gigantic ideals somehow being borne out of small budgets and limited resources by seemingly limitless passion and sheer force of will.” – Indiewire

“The Blu-ray event of the year for most serious film lovers is Shout Factory’s Herzog: The Collection” – RogerEbert.com
