One of my hobbies is watching obscure titles on old VHS tapes usually bought from flea markets and car boot sales. Most of the films are genuinely appalling, but every once in a while a gem is found.
Salt in the wound is one of them. In fact, most Klaus Kinski films are better than your average American pap. Apart from Kinski's psychotic performance, Salt in the wound also excels in cinematography. Some scenes are rescued by imaginative use of light. Also the length of the film is less than 90 minutes, which helps in keeping the viewer focused throughout.
The worst part of the film is the script. Cliched and predictable, it goes to show, that imagination in the casting and directing goes a long way.
Recommended, if you can get a copy.
