German Documentarian Substance War: LA 1, NY 0

Substance War: LA 1, NY 0
FROM HIS HOME IN THE Hollywood Hills, filmmaker Werner Herzog gets grizzly in the April 2007 Esquire:
"Los Angeles is the city with the most substance in the United States - cultural substance. There is a competition between New York and Los Angeles, but New York only consumes culture and borrows it from Europe. Things get done in Los Angeles."
Imagine him saying it in the sharp German accent that narrated Grizzly Man. Then imagine him bitch-slapping Carrie Bradshaw. First Maher, now Herzog. It's on, Big Apple.
