My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done Trailer

There are two, completed Werner Herzog films showing at the Toronto Film Festival this year, the first being that Nic Cage flick Bad Lieutenant and the second being My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done starring Oscar nominees Michael Shannon and Willem Dafoe. Thanks to The Playlist we have an early look at the trailer. My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done is loosely based on the true story of a San Diego man who experiences a series of mystifying events, including acting out a Sophocles play in his mind, that lead him to brutally murder his own mother with a sword. Herzog has described it as more of a horror film.

Watch the trailer for Werner Herzog's My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done:

My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done is both written and directed by Oscar nominated German filmmaker Werner Herzog, of many German films previously and recent features like Grizzly Man, Rescue Dawn, and Encounters at the End of the World. The screenplay was co-written by Herzog and his former assistant director Herbert Golder. The film was also executive produced by famed filmmaker David Lynch. This will premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September and is currently looking for a US distributor. Stay tuned for more updates on both this and Bad Lieutenant, as we expect to hear plenty from Herzog up in Toronto.

Love Herzog, and no one plays weird/scary like Shannon (Think Revolutionary Road)... so this should be pretty good, especcially without Nic Cage!

I didn't like the way they tried to sell the movie but the directing looks pretty awesome plus Willem Dafoe is in it so ill catch this flick.

'My Son, My Son' might have Oscar nominees, but 'Bad Lieutenant' has an Oscar winner.

Werner Herzog is a great director, but the trailers to both these movies are really really bad.

Michael Shannon is probably one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood today, i`d love to see him in more lead roles. Lynch, Herzog, Shannon, Dafoe, everything about this movie screms "Awesome!!!", i can`t wait to see it.

I think it looks like an interesting story.. .but damn serious... did they have to dictate the whole thing with that cheap text effect.

just came back home from the north american premiere of it at the TIFF. I have mixed feelings about this film. A portion of me wants to love it because I've never seen anything like it before, but a lot of the scenes seemed un necessary and the film dragged on because of it. I expected William Dafoe to have a major performance in this film, but his role was minimal and almost unnoticeable, even Michael Pena outshone him with the 5-10 minutes of screen time that he had. Overall, the powerhouse was Michael Shannon, but I question some of the directors decisions and his translations from text to film. However, I'd give the film a solid 7/10 for originality and its dark humor.
