Werner Herzog's Cave of Forgotten Dreams examines the concept of humanness and marks his first foray into 3-D filmmaking. While the format may be a departure, Herzog says all of his films have one major thing in common: They could all have the same title. "I’m now doing a film with death-row inmates, and as a general umbrella title, I thought about Gazing Into The Abyss, and then I thought that would have been a fine title for the cave film. It fits for almost every film I’ve made. Bad Lieutenant, Aguirre, you just name it," he tells the AV Club. "Grizzly Man," offers the interviewer. "Grizzly Man, yes," Herzog replies. [AV Club]
