“One of the core themes in Werner Herzog’s work is that the universe is a cold and unflinching place that is ruled by nothing but madness. The natural order of things is chaos, and any attempt by man to forge some stability in that chaos is a pointless endeavor. Also, happiness is an illusion.” From: The universe is indifferent to man, and Werner Herzog is indifferent to Pokémon Go – The A.V. Club
I will grudgingly give Werner Herzog a pass for speaking out publicly about not getting Pokemon Go. For one thing, he was being interviewed at the time, so I blame the interviewer. Second, he seems rather genuinely grim, so the odds of this being some sort of artful pose are meager.
