Summary
Herzog by Ebert is a comprehensive collection of Ebert's writings about the legendary director, featuring all of his reviews of individual films, as well as longer essays he wrote for his Great Movies series. The book also brings together other essays, letters, and interviews, including a letter Ebert wrote Herzog upon learning of the dedication to him of "Encounters at the End of the World;" a multifaceted profile written at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival; and an interview with Herzog at Facet's Multimedia in 1979 that has previously been available only in a difficult-to-obtain pamphlet. Herzog himself contributes a foreword in which he discusses his relationship with Ebert. -- from Amazon.com
Summary
At the time of his death in 2013, Roger Ebert was arguably the most influential writer about movies in the United States. He had been film critic for the “Chicago Sun-Times” for over 45 years, reviewing more movies than any other critic active during that time and pioneering in both television reporting and reviewing. In 1975 he was the first film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize for criticism. Among the film directors who started working at about the same time Ebert started writing for the “Sun-Times,” two inspired a particularly intense devotion. One was Martin Scorsese, the subject of “Scorsese by Ebert” (published in 2008). The other was Werner Herzog--Ebert first saw one of his films at the New York Film Festival in 1968. This volume gathers together all Ebert’s reviews of individual films (as well as longer pieces he wrote for “The Great Movies” series), free-wheeling interviews, and essays in which he discusses various aspects of Herzog’s achievement
