Murderous George

(It's not really Werner Hertzog, of course, but it is a clever and very funny parody. To appreciate it properly, you probably need to have seen his documentary Grizzly Man, in which Hertzog contrasts his view of nature as grim, unreasoning and full of horror with the unbalanced optimism of the self-styled grizzly man, Timothy Treadwell, who was eaten by one of the bears he mistakenly believed he was protecting. Come to think of it, this isn't so much a parody: it's a hard SF version of the children's story.)

Really funny.
If anyone ever saw Herzog's documentary with his voice - he will appreciate this.
I thought more not of his Grizzly but his film "Bells from the Deep" about Russia. It could be object of great parody.
Anyway, Werner Herzog is great man.
Aguirre, Cobra Verde are among my favourite films. And I very like music of Popol Vuh (German band) in his films.
