He has taken his camera to parts of the world no other director would dare go, and told stories in ways no one had ever considered. These sixteen masterpieces, which blur the line between fiction and documentary, illustrate why Werner Herzog is the most daring, visionary and dangerous filmmaker of our lifetime, the director that both Milos Forman and Francois Truffaut have called the greatest filmmaker alive today.
This deluxe set includes, for the first time on Blu-Ray:
EVEN DWARFS STARTED SMALL
LAND OF SILENCE AND DARKNESS
AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD
THE ENIGMA OF KASPAR HAUSER
HEART OF GLASS
NOSFERATU THE VAMPYRE
BALLAD OF LITTLE SOLDIER
WHERE THE GREEN ANTS DREAM
LESSONS OF DARKNESS
LITTLE DIETER NEEDS TO FLY
MY BEST FIEND
One of the most impressive Blu-ray sets of the year… the films here are among the best and most significant of the 1970s and 1980s --Los Angeles Times, July 29th 2014
This could very easily be considered the DEFINITIVE Herzog set --Kyle Anderson, Nerdist

The 8 films included in the BFI set that you won't find here are as follows: The Unprecedented Defence of the Fortress Deutschkreuz (1967); Last Words (1968); Precautions Against Fanatics (1969); Handicapped Future (1970); The Great Ecstasy of Woodcarver Steiner (1975); How Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck (1976); Huie's Sermon (1980), and God's Angry Man (1980).
The 6 films featured here that aren't on the BFI set include Even Dwarfs Started Small; Ballad of the Little Soldier; Where the Green Ants Dream; Lessons of Darkness; Little Dieter Needs to Fly, and My Best Fiend.
If you do the math, the price of the BFI set (including shipping) divided by 8 comes to about ten and a half bucks per film. That's ultimately why I re-ordered that set. I do hope this price will drop before its release. It's a lot of money to spend and I haven't seen most of these films but I haven't seen a Herzog film that I didn't really like/love. My only disappointment would be the exclusion of Grizzly Man.
Hope this helps!
