Werner Herzog describes his dramatic narration in films as a "stylized voice." At home with his wife, he says, "I am a mild-mannered, fluffy husband."

Fresh Air Weekend highlights some of the best interviews and reviews from past weeks, and new program elements specially paced for weekends. Our weekend show emphasizes interviews with writers, filmmakers, actors and musicians, and often includes excerpts from live in-studio concerts. This week:

Werner Herzog says it's not good to circle 'your own navel' but writes a memoir anyway: Herzog reflects on the curiosity that's fueled his career in the new memoir, Every Man for Himself and God Against All. Just don't expect a deep confessional: "I never liked too deep introspection."

The Rolling Stones prove surprisingly warm and lively on 'Hackney Diamonds': The Stones' new album — their first in 18 years — features guests appearances by Lady Gaga, Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney, and offers at least one song that can stand among their very best.

As a kid, Greta Lee identified with Val Kilmer — now, she imagines 'Past Lives': Growing up, Lee recognized herself in the "really big, muscular performances" of Kilmer and Nicolas Cage. In Past Lives, she plays an immigrant torn between two men she loves.
