Werner Herzog plays it straight in The Grand (Anchor Bay)
In 1980, Werner Herzog appeared in a Les Blank short film called Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe , in which he did precisely that. The new film The Grand (opened April 4 at Landmark's Hillcrest Cinemas ) should have been called Werner Herzog Steals the Show because that's precisely what he does in this mockumentary about a poker tournament.

This isn't very good stuff, but even so, if you like poker you probably will enjoy watching anyway.

I have to agree with Peter .
