Actor Klaus Kinski and director Werner Herzog became famous for their numerous collaborations and on-set bust ups.
However, this footage of Herzog playing back an audio tape from the set of Aguirre, Wrath of God is fascinating precisely because we don’t see the manic, bulging intensity of Kinski’s face.
For those who haven’t seen them, Lesley Blank’s Burden of Dreams (a documentary about the making of Fizcarraldo) and Herzog’s My Best Fiend are essential viewing.
