I like what Michel Foucault and Christoph Schlingensief talked about Werner Schroeter's films very much.

Michel Foucault talks about THE DEATH OF MARIA MALIBRAN (1973, Werner Schroeter, A+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++) and WILLOW SPRINGS that "They express something that is not attempting to explain what is happening, something that allows you to not even have to begin asking the question.”"

When Werner died Christoph Schlingensief wrote in his blog that he hoped his films would become accessible to a younger audience and find their way into the film school curriculum, not merely because his films were uniquely radical, but also because they were generally unique.

Thanks to Ratchapoom for telling us about this interview:

There is a funny mistake in the interview: the name "Werner Herzog" is used instead of "Werner Schroeter" in one place.
