Roger & Me
Directed by Michael Moore (1989)

My favorite was the exhibit sponsored by General Motors: a puppet auto worker singing a love song
to the robot replacing him on the assembly line. The song was called "Me and My Buddy".

Man on Wire
Directed by James Marsh (2008)

Burden of Dreams
Directed by Les Blank (1982)

Kinski always says [the jungle's] full of erotic elements. I don't see it so much erotic.
I see it more full of obscenity. It's just - Nature here is vile and base. I wouldn't see anything erotical here.
I would see fornication and asphyxiation and choking and fighting for survival and... growing and... just rotting away.

— Werner Herzog
