Great Shot of the Week

Stroszek (1977)

Dir. Werner Herzog

Oh come on… You didn’t really think I’d continue this week by week without including Herzog’s infamous ending to Stroszek did you?  If this is not familiar to you by now, then you are in for a treat… Yes, it’s the very last shot of the film, something I’m not in the habit of showing… But as you can imagine, it hardly ruins the brilliance that precedes it; I after all saw this shot before actually seeing the entire film, and I can assure you, it only made me smile more after seeing the rest.  Arguably Herzog’s finest moment.  (If only he could’ve have had Bruno S. and Klaus Kinski join in on the fun… People might have had to stop making films if that had happened…)
