This photographic work ("L.A. Herzog" by RJ Shaughnessy) is very relevant.

Where are you Werner Herzog? It looks like he's tempted by the Hollywood entertainment system; maybe I'm wrong. Entertainment means more money & fame, but less freedom & spirit. For me, it's very important to see that an artist respects the coherence of his entire work, from the beginning. He can balance from culture to entertainment, if he keeps les mains libres, like Louis Malle did.

I respect immensely Herzog, after having watched so many of his movies. If "No one can serve two masters, culture & entertainment. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money", I personally need the Werner Herzog from God.
