Containing Multitudes Since 2004
i love herzog. his doc on kinski 'my best fiend' is pretty darn amazing i think.
Mike D, amazing is the word. The scenes of the mass gathering's Kinski spoke at and Herzog interviewing someone who recalled Kinski smashing up a bathroom in his home stand out for me. Excellent stuff.
Towards the end of shooting, the Indians offered to kill Kinski for me. They said, Should we kill him for you? and I said, No, for God’s sake I still need him for shooting. Leave him to me. Leave him to me. And I declined at the time but they were dead serious. They would have killed him undoubtedly if I had wanted it. I at once regretted that I had held the Indians back from their purpose. –Werner Herzog, My Best Fiend
