Werner Herzog’s Greatest Hits Get the Supercut Treatment, Thanks to Netflix — Watch

The filmmaker's latest documentary will hit the streaming service later this week.

Into The Inferno

Werner Herzog directs “Into the Inferno.”


“It is a fire that wants to burst forth and it could not care less about what we are doing up here!” Thus lauded filmmaker and seemingly unstoppable documentarian Werner Herzog explains the themes and ideas of his latest feature, the volcano-centric documentary “Into the Inferno,” a swirling mass of fire and destruction that only someone like Herzog could give us.

The film recently made its debut on the festival circuit, hitting up Telluride, Toronto and Rome in short order, and now it’s poised to rocket straight into your eyeballs, thanks to a steaming deal with Netflix that will bring the majestic power of both volcanoes and Herzog — together, at last, finally — right into your own home. No place is safe. But, then again, isn’t that exactly what Herzog has been telling us all these years?

In celebration of Herzog’s original documentary production with the streaming giant, Netflix has put together a snappy supercut of some of Herzog’s greatest works — though any footage of that one time he was shot while giving a video interview, the best and most wonderful encapsulation of Herzog as a human, is woefully absent — that also serves to highlight the strong connections between “Inferno” and films like “Grizzly Man,” “Dinotasia,” and “Little Dieter Needs to Fly.”

Herzog has always gone his own way, and in just 36 seconds, this video reminds us of why that’s so important. “Into the Inferno” will be available on Netflix starting on Friday, October 28. Check out our exclusive video below:
