Wener Herzog is a filmmaker that cannot be ignored. He’s challenging, dangerous, and he puts his actors through hell. For some reason, Willem Dafoe loves that hell and went from creatively collecting logs in Von Trier’s Antichrist to playing detective for Herzog’s My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done.

The film involves a man (played by Michael Shannon) who experiences some strange, stirring occurrences that lead him down the unnatural path toward killing his mother with a sword.

Sounds Herzog-ian. Fortunately, First Look Studios was sponsoring a press day that everyone could attend from the comfort of their own home with nothing but an internet connection, a Twitter handle, and a pants-free attitude.

Glib and candid as he ever was. Yet, at the same time, speaking eternal truths. As a means to promote My Son, My Son, he suggests watching Grizzly Man if you want to know what humans are really all about.

To add to the madness, My Son has released this clip where a man explains, well, you just have to watch it for yourself:

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done hits DVD in September.
