Does Werner Herzog Have a College Degree? Answer

Did Werner Herzog Go To College?

Try researching whether Werner Herzog went to college and earned a degree, and you won't find much. But, do a little digging, and you'll see this image from Google search (below) that indicates Werner Herzog's college degree, or at least some form of education is from Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich.

This is not normally an issue, because Herzog has become famous for his documentary film making accomplishments. He has also been an advocate of learning the art of film making without going to college. Yes, Werner Herzog indicates school in the form of expensive college is pretty much a waste. He even set up The Werner Herzog Rogue Film School as a thumb in the face of traditional education, believing that real film directing is learned in the field. His Masterclass is also set up as a short course to get wanna-be film makers to hit the ground running. Here's a Youtube video of Werner discussing his Rogue Film School with Conan, saying he is against kids going to film school to listen to lectures. Conan actually says "how dare you" start your own film school, if you don't believe in film school. But, Herzog comes back to say he teaches things like lock picking and forging, because real life skills like forging helped him get his movie made when an obstacle arose. So, it's not so much education he is against, but the pointless lectures, and high prices. His school is all about breaking the rules. 

Here's an interview with Charlie Rose talking with Werner Herzog:

Netflix's "The Open House" Movie - Ending Explained, Spoiler Alert

"The Open House" Ending Explained, Spoilers Netflix recently released the new horror movie, "The Open House", to horrible reviews. The first, big question (spoiler alert) is who was the killer? This movie does not give us the satisfaction of knowing! It gives us no answers, and all those scary mysteries Netlfix promises in the film details, unexplained! And, everybody dies. There was no reason for anyone to watch and kill them, just a bunch of random scare tactics by the directors, and a big let down. How about that for a crappy flick to waste a Friday night on. 
Our Review  - Zero Stars! (with a nod to the semi OK acting by decent cast)
 Lots of red herrings, build ups for no reason, bad plot (could have been summed up in 10 minutes), lots of things happening but no explanation, and everybody dies with no answer to who the killer is nor the motive. No there was no ghosts to explain the weird stuff that happens (which would have been better than the meaningless dr…

Devilman Crybaby Ending Explained - Spoiler Alert

Ending Explained - Devilman Crybaby
Beware, spoilers ahead - let's look at Netflix's (watch here) Devilman Crybaby's ending explained. Some hated the ending (see Reddit comments), and you can imagine why, because in the end humanity dies. Yes, everyone dies. Disappointing especially when the whole movie sets up a hero (the boy, Akira) to merge with one of the demons attacking the planet in order to stop the take over. But, through the whole movie, we only see how flawed humanity is, and in the end, it's over for the people of Earth. The Earth is destroyed. That is how it ends. Post-credits shows a planet, but it is not the Earth but another "moon" created from the debris of the destroyed Earth, which may foretell yet another cycle of the same, after everything cools and spawns life again.

Moral of the story? A single man cannot change fate. Humans as a species are too selfish, and are doomed?

Infinity Chamber Ending Explained

Infinity Chamber Ending Explained - Comment with your own theory - Spoiler Alert! Infinity Chamber (trailer here) was criticized by the LA Times for going on, and on and on, but what
is most intriguing is the ending. After nodding off through the whole film, the ending pulls things back in sharp focus by making you wonder what happened. After searching the internet, there are no official explanations for what happened, only some theories on Reddit, some of which make total sense. 
Ending: unfortunately, Frank Lerner did not make it out, whether out is the infinity chamber we saw throughout the movie, or wherever (in an interrogation to find the flashdrive, the hospital, etc.), Frank is still in there, and making peace with that by giving up the struggle and enjoying his time with his memory of something better.
