Werner Herzog Rocks Again

Not sure if you've heard the recent buzz behind the adult "children's" book, Go the F**k to Sleep, but it's been in the news recently, and it actually opened at number one on the New York Time's bestseller list.

It's a little baffling to me, but whatever. Anyway, more recently, Samuel L. Jackson read this aloud and it caused quite an internet sensation, as he is the king of the "fuck" lexicon.

But I'm much more impressed with this passionate, chilling reading by director Werner Herzog. Not getting nearly enough of the attention it deserves, I feel it blows the Samuel L. Jackson version away. Yes the quality (actual audio vs. flip cam) hurts it, but still - there are moments where you think Herzog might not be acting here...
