TIFF 2011: Films We Are Most Looking Forward To – Trailer And Clips From Herzog’s ‘Into The Abyss’
Werner Herzog is considered as one of the greatest figures of the New German Cinema for a reason. François Truffaut once called Herzog “the most important film director alive.” He is always pushing himself as a filmmaker and despite his age, he is one of the hardest working directors working today. His films often feature heroes with impossible dreams, people with unique talents in obscure fields, or individuals who find themselves in conflict with nature. Speaking of which, two clips and the first trailer for his latest documentary have found their way online. These three clips give a good idea of what the film is all about and given that Herzog has made two of the greatest documentaries ever made with Grizzly Man and Encounters At The End Of The World, Into The Abyss makes my list of hotly anticipated films screening at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
