• There are few greater admirers of the late documentarian Les Blank than the legendary German filmmaker Werner Herzog. (The two were already close when Blank filmed the making of Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo for Burden of Dreams.) So we knew we wanted to turn to Herzog to speak on behalf of his colleague and friend for our new collector’s set Les Blank: Always for Pleasure. In the following supplement, Herzog talks about becoming acquainted with Blank’s work, his love for Blank’s 1971 film Spend It All, and what he’s borrowed from his friend, plus shares some warm and amusing anecdotes.
