My Best Fiend

This wonderfully incisive documentary tells of the bizarre collaberation between actor Klaus Kinski and filmmaker Werner Herzog. This strange actor-director tandem led to such great work as "Aguirre, The Wrath of God', 'Woyzek' and 'Nosferatu the Vampyre', but as revealed here, their intense natures often clashed in violent confrontations.
