“One of the great portraits of artists fighting, even with murderous rage, to reach the sublime.” - San Francisco Chronicle
Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski are both icons in their own right, and their five feature film collaborations were an explosion of unbridled artistry. But those fireworks were just as powerful off-camera, where the two creative supernovas would clash to the point of devising genuine plans to murder one another. Following Kinski’s death, Herzog created this simultaneously touching and damning tribute to their partnership, a fascinating and often hilarious exploration of irreconcilable differences and unchecked hatred coalescing in powerful beauty. Essential.
