Together they produced five epic films. Together, they moved to, and often beyond, the brink of insanity. When Klaus Kinski told director Wernor Herzog that he was leaving the set of Aguirre, only a few scenes before the end, Herzog promised to track him down and shoot him. Kinski finished the film. The final scene is a classic of modern cinema.
Herzog's gigantic jungle adventure! Rubber baron Fitzcarraldo dreams of bringing together Enrico Caruso and Sarah Bernhardt for an epic celebration of Grand Opera in
Aguirre, the Wrath of God
A breathtaking journey into the heart of darkness! Kinski plays a crazed Spanish conquistador in an unforgettable portrait of madness and power.
A milestone in international cinema: a dual-language remake of F.W. Murnau's legendary 1922 horror classic Nosferatu. Kinski gives a career-best performance as the vampire Dracula.
Kinski, in his final collaboration with director Herzog, stars as Cobra Verde, the barefoot South American bandit and slave trader who aspires to be King in his newly-adopted African homeland.
A moving interpretation of Georg Bachner's harrowing play. Kinski again delivers a stunning portrayal of a man's descent into madness.
My Best Fiend
Herzog's oddly tranquil ode to his explosive leading man. Herzog recounts, not only kinski's on-set ravings and megalomania, but the tender moments underlying their combustible relationship.
