Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski: Together Forever

My best fiend
My best fiend Klaus Kinski (DVD - 2000 German ) Ger DVD B KINSKI and more… Available to borrow in some locations Holds: 1

Annotation:Documentary with film excerpts about the stormy artistic partnership between Herzog and Kinski. Is Kinski the actor and Herzog the director, or is it the other way around?

Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes
Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes Aguirre, wrath of God (DVD - 2000 German ) Ger DVD MOVIE A and more… Available to borrow in some locations Holds: 1

Annotation:Herzog embarked on the first of a series of collaborations with Kinski on Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972). This story of insane Spanish conquistador Don Lope de Aguirre (Kinski) and his ill-fated quest to locate El Dorado, the Incan city of gold, forced Herzog and the crew to venture deep into the heart of the Peruvian jungles, where they battled now-legendary conditions to obtain the images. Critics and the public instantly heralded the film as a masterwork.

Nosferatu Phantom der Nacht (DVD - 2002 German ) Ger DVD MOVIE N All copies in use Availability details Holds: 6

Annotation:A remake of F.W. Murnau’s Nosferatu (1922) which solidified Herzog's aim of connecting German cinema's past to the present, and in which Kinski's hyper-articulated performance as Dracula blurs the line between horror and farce (as many of his Herzogian roles do).

Annotation:Goes behind the scenes in the making of Herzog's Fitzcarraldo. Filmmaker Les Blank captured the production, made perilous by Herzog's determination not to use models or special effects, as well as recording some of Kinski's notorious tantrums.
