In this AV Club Cave of Forgotten Dreams Q & A, director Werner Herzog admits that the title Gazing into the Abyss would work for just about any of his films. It's true. Here's our exclusive clip from Cave.

AVC: All of the action in Cave Of Forgotten Dreams happens internally, making it a curious choice for 3-D. Why did you decide to shoot in that format?

WH: The first time I ever entered into the cave, I immediately knew it had to be 3-D. I was allowed for one hour into the cave just to access the technical problems that were out there. I had no camera or photo apparatus with me. It was immediately clear that it was imperative to do it in 3-D, and it’s obvious when you see it. Sounding deep into the abysses of time, and into the origin of the modern human soul. It’s strange, 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.

AVC: Grizzly Man.
WH: Grizzly Man, yes.
