Don't know who Werner is? Don't worry. You'll know who this German cult director saved in 2006: Joaquin Phoenix. The actor-turned-rapper-turned-actor overturned his car after his brakes failed and he collided with another vehicle. Werner lived nearby and came to the scene. Sadly, the rendezvous did not result in a movie collaboration, but it did produce a hilarious animated recreation of the rescue, as told by Werner.
