Incidentally, a while back (quite a while back, actually!), I mentioned a little film by documentarian Les Blank, called Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe. This is actually connected to my earlier post today, in that Herzog promised to eat said shoe if Errol Morris ever finished a film. He meant the dare as an encouragement to Morris, and it worked: Morris finished Gates of Heaven (see clip in previous post). And Herzog ate his shoe. With garlic and onions.
