Not the first time, sadly. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cruelty_to_animals#TV_.26_film_making

Pagan distractions from the Nativity of our Lord and Savior!
Hey, I'll have you know that, 1. Pulp Fiction contains Bible quotes. 2. Neo is a self-sacrificing Christ-figure. 3. There's Seven Dwarves. The significance is obvious.

I've sent off my proposal to the heads of the various jurisdictions that these become required viewing for the Nativity season and expect my response soon.

You have a brilliant career ahead of you as a mega-church AV worship leader.

WTH?!?! And people wonder how Hitler was able to pull off what he did? Frankly, it is more amazing to me that this guy got people to take off their shoes and twirl their socks in the air to that misagos of a song than anything //:=| did.

Truly EPIC.

THAT VIDEO.

Never stops giving me nightmares. I really pray that I would not have been the person hopping around and waving. Who am I kidding -- I probably would have been.

Real film makers harm humans, not animals, to make their films:

In his autobiographical film Portrait Werner Herzog, Herzog has stated that the film's spectacular production was partly inspired by the engineering feats of ancient standing stones. The film production was an incredible ordeal, and famously involved moving a 320-ton steamship over a hill without the use of special effects. Herzog believed that no one had ever performed a similar feat in history, and likely never will again, calling himself "Conquistador of the Useless".[4] Three similar-looking ships were bought for the production and used in different scenes and locations, including scenes that were shot aboard the ship while it crashed through rapids, injuring three of the six people involved in the filming

It was either in Fitzcarraldo or Aguirre the Wrath of God in which he threatened to shoot Klaus Kinski if he hadn't gotten back to acting.

During Fitzcarraldo, the local tribesman offered to kill Kinski for Herzog.

"My Best Fiend" is still one of my favorite documentaries ever.

A fine, fine film.

Waiting to see his latest.

Yeah, it was Aguirre where Herzog threatened to shoot Kinski.  (Actually, according to Wikipedia Herzog denies this saying he only verbally threatened him.)  In that same movie some of the actors were making too much noise so he fired three rounds into the hut.

But all the same, those two had such chemistry in movies.  I haven't seen Fitzcarraldo yet but certainly need to.  I have seen almost all of the others they did together (Nosferatu, Cobra Verde, and Aguirre).

Check out their rushed production of Buechner's Woyzeck. The scene ordering follows pretty closely to the more conservative take.
