I got to meet Les at Documentary Fest in Durham, NC. He screened BoD. My
favorite screen is where Herzog has the meltdown in jungle:

I have often felt this way doing a PhD.

Les talked about sitting behind Herzog at the premiere. When this seen came
on Herzog began to sink down in his seat and pull at his hair.

Going to miss Les and Roger.
