Shoe Eating

A wee documentary Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe.

The director Werner Herzog made a bet with Errol Morris that if Errol makes a film, Werner will eat his own shoe. Guess what happens? And so we have this which is about Werner cooking his shoe, and then eating it in front of an audience. He talks about the role of films in society, and the need for the occasional silly bet to help spur things along.

It's a nice wee film, with director Les Blank taking advantage of the moment to capture it on film. I don't think I've seen films by any of the people involved, but they seem decent people, if taking on somewhat bizarre film matter.

Or it could have been a publicity stunt, but still cute.

You can watch it for yourself!
