Watch: 90-Minute Werner Herzog-Directed Killers Concert, Plus His Mini-Documentary on the Band

Posted by , on September 20, 2012 at 2:05 pm 

A combination of Werner Herzog and the word “killers” can go so, so many directions, almost all of them twisted and scarring — if not necessarily unexpected. Out-of-the-ordinary, however, is his recent partnership with The Killers, that rock band you might recognize by a couple of tunes and who, now, I can mostly associate with the German New Wave’s most enduring figure.

They joined forces as part of their director-oriented American Express UNSTAGED series, wherein Herzog directed both a 95-minute Killers performance, along with a seven-minute mini-documentary which puts a spotlight on the group. (One can only imagine he was more comfortable with that smaller, more familiar medium.) I’ll get down to watching the informative piece later on, while the show, though likely to go unseen by myself — filmed concerts aren’t really my thing, unless I’m indebted to the director or really love the group — is something many will be plenty eager to check out.

The concert can be seen below:

After that, give the other piece a look:

Are you impressed with either work? How does Herzog handle the concert format?
