Werner Herzog on crazed roles and crazy actors

Venice, Italy - While researching an idea for a movie, German director Werner Herzog visited a US trailer-park to interview a man who spent eight years in a mental asylum for killing his mother with an antique sabre.

"I could tell he was still insane and dangerous," the legendary director said.

Then something on the wall of the man's decrepit trailer sent a chill down his spine: a poster of his own film, Aguirre, the Wrath of God, displayed together with a candle and a crucifix.
