In memory of Les Blank, the great documentarian whose sophisticated screen language appeared effortless when connecting us to regional musicians, garlic, gap-toothed women or Werner Herzog.

Yes… or garlic! Don’t forget about the garlic! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDHbDqBcNak
Oh, you already said garlic. 😀
I always say garlic — as good as Ten Mothers too!
I also feel the need to post a clip from Burden of Dreams, which helped establish the Herzog character, we would all come to know and love and be “overwhelmed” by in his later documentaries.
And Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe, an ode to the courage and empathic audacity of
all documentary filmmakers and their shoes — and garlic!
