Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Oh look , , , a Klaus Kinski tattoo,
Perhaps the most spectacular sell-out in the history of the talkies. Farocki should punch Herzog in the nose as a special event at this year's Berlinale.
My favorite nihilist.
I'm reminded of the story, recounted in "My Beautiful Fiend," of the crew carrying Winchester rifles in the Amazon for protection and Herzog promising Kinski that he'd be shot in the back multiple times if he kept his threat to quit the movie. Also, during "Fitzcarraldo," when the Amazonian Indians offered, through an interpreter, to kill Kinski, if Herzog so desired. Fascinating.
