The Trees Are In Misery And The Birds Are In Misery

A couple of things from around the internet:

1. A nice interview with Werner Herzog from an Australian paper. Here's the whole of the Burden Of Dreams speech as well:

"Kinski says it's full of erotic elements. It's not so much erotic, but full of obscenity. Nature here is vile and base. I wouldn't see anything erotic here. I see fornication and asphyxiation and choking, fighting for survival and growing and just rotting away. Of course there's a lot of misery, but it's the same misery that's all around us. The trees are in misery, and the birds are in misery. I don't think they sing; they just screech in pain. Taking a close look at what's around us, there is some sort of harmony. It's the harmony of overwhelming and collective murder."

2. A trailer for Martin Scorsese's upcoming inspirational film The Taxi Driver.
