Reviews

"A compulsively readable, probing collection. It's equal parts challenging and satisfying, infuriating and enlightening."--Publishers Weekly

"Herzog seems to peer nonstop into the abyss combining vainglory, cruelty, and madness. Those are the coordinates at which Herzog geolocates humanity."--BookForum

"Scenarios contains more than merely dialogue in cold type. Herzog's screenplays read like novellas--the characters are fully thought-out and the settings are vividly described, albeit in long, medium and close shots."--Shepherd Express

"Herzog doesn't write traditional scripts. Instead, Herzog writes scenarios which are like a hybrid of film, fiction, and prose poetry."--Film International
