Just watched the documentary KLAUS KINSKI: MY BEST FRIEND by Werner Herzog. He directed Kinski in 5 movies, the best known are perhaps AGUIRRE the WRATH of GOD & FTZCARRALDO although the others are known also. Highly recommended as it covers a very complex personality & skips over nothing on either end of this actor's personae. Lots of actual film footage & some you wouldn't expect to see from off camera.
A good portion of Herzog's personality is revealed also. Kinski had the best face in cinema for the expression of desire, sensuality, radiant happiness, anger, madness & complete maniacal devotion to a thought or purpose. Herzog reveals & lays bare the soul of this man who he knew, loved, hated & loved again well. The final shots are perhaps the most revealing of all. I found it to be a tremendous achievement until I remembered it was done by Werner Herzog , that is normal for this great director & documentarian.
