“If Kanye West Applies to My Rogue Film School, I Would Invite Him”: Werner Herzog Takes on Kanye West’s “Famous” Video

Director Werner Herzog brings his German-accented, customary evocation of strange wonder to a dissection of Kanye West’s “Famous” video in this clip posted over at the Daily Beast. More than just a deconstructive joke, however, Herzog turns the viewing into an instructional take on why every filmmaker needs his or her main storyline and then a parallel story the audience creates for themselves. Says Herzog, “This is very good stuff. If Kanye West applies to my Rogue Film School,” I would invite him.
