I do not follow ideas, I stumble into stories or into people; and I know that this is so big, I have to make a film. Very often, films come like uninvited guests, like burglars in the middle of the night. They are in your kitchen; something is stirring, you wake…. Herzog by Ebert by Roger Ebert. Roger Ebert was the most influential film critic in the United States, the first to win a Pulitzer Prize.

The scenario is there to fill out what would otherwise be a slim volume comprising the author's recollections of the making of Heart of Glass. It is a philosophical rumination about an infinitely peculiar artist that takes you straight into the heart of darkness — or at least the Heart of Glass , which, as it turns out, is pretty dark. But without reading Greenberg's book, one would not know that Herzog achieved this effect by hypnotizing the actors — who were not professional actors at all, but rather people susceptible to hypnosis.
In the afterword, Herzog explains the rationale behind this strange method. Only the actor playing Hias, the prophet who foretells doom, and those portraying the master glassmakers who were actually dealing with molten glass were not hypnotized. There was a several-hour period when I was convinced that Herzog had figured out a way to use film as a hypnotic method.
Herzog suggests as much in the afterword, so beware. Though Herzog is famed as one of the greatest directors in history, he is equally well-known for his eccentric personality and working methods.
Every Night the Trees Disappear: Werner Herzog and the Making of Heart of Glass
His epic battles with actor Klaus Kinski are legendary, as are his insane insistence that the crew of 's Fitzcarraldo actually lug a ship over an Amazonian mountain and the occasion when he ate his shoe on camera after losing a bet to documentarian Errol Morris. It is the glimpse into this Herzog — the methodical madman with the camera — that makes Greenberg's book so compelling.
Greenberg, now a filmmaker in his own right, met Herzog when he was a very young man. Make it up — say what you want. At the end of the day, Herzog mentioned that his new film would involve hypnosis, and he asked Greenberg to join him.
