Aroview: Werner Herzog’s personal portrait of his friend and famous ‘alter ego’, the late Klaus Kinski, threads together just some of the bizarre incidents that characterised their love-hate relationship over five feature films.
Together with the testimonials of other collaborators, he paints his fascinating, ‘difficult’ subject in an appropriately honest light, of which no doubt he would have both approved and detested. DVD version is in English or German with English subtitles.
3 stars (Good Enough) This is interesting viewing, but feels rather one-sided. Herzog fluctuates between loving and hating Kinski, which is understandable, but no warning is given, and he acts cynically towards some interviewees who speak kindly of Kinski.~dr.strangelove
