Alan Greenberg was, according to the director, the first outsider to seek him out and recognize his greatness. At the end of their first evening together Herzog urged Greenberg to work with him on his new film--and everything thereafter.
In this film, Heart of Glass, Herzog exercised control over his actors by hypnotizing them before shooting their scenes. The result was one of the most haunting movies ever made.
Werner Herzog and the Making of Heart of Glass
Not since Lillian Ross's classic book Picture has an Americanwriter given such a close, first-hand, book-length account of how a director makes a movie. But this is not a conventional, journalistic account. Instead it presents a unique vision with the feel of a novel--intimate, penetrating, and filled with mystery.

Only the actor playing Hias, the prophet who foretells doom, and those portraying the master glassmakers who were actually dealing with molten glass were not hypnotized.

Though Herzog is famed as one of the greatest directors in history, he is equally well-known for his eccentric personality and working methods. His epic battles with actor Klaus Kinski are legendary, as are his insane insistence that the crew of 's Fitzcarraldo actually lug a ship over an Amazonian mountain and the occasion when he ate his shoe on camera after losing a bet to documentarian Errol Morris.
It is the glimpse into this Herzog — the methodical madman with the camera — that makes Greenberg's book so compelling. Greenberg, now a filmmaker in his own right, met Herzog when he was a very young man. Make it up — say what you want. At the end of the day, Herzog mentioned that his new film would involve hypnosis, and he asked Greenberg to join him. As the book progresses, the hypnotism begins to play an increasingly minor role and we see deeper into Herzog's working methods.
