The eccentric German director Werner Herzog, who is 70, has been keeping characteristically busy of late, narrating Kickstarter videos and making public service documentaries about the dangers of texting and driving while keeping at his standard cinematic endeavors (one of which is rumored to include James Franco). The Film Society of Lincoln Center presents a week-long retrospective of Mr. Herzog’s early work that runs through Thursday. Viewers will be treated to such gems as Heart of Glass, Stroszek and Fitzcarraldo. Tuesday night’s offerings include Signs of Life (his first feature) and the horror-comedy Even Dwarfs Started Small.
The Film Society of Lincoln Center, 70 Lincoln Center Plaza, (212) 875-5610, 6:30pm and 8:30pm, $13 general public, $9 senior, $8 member.
