Humorous look at Kinski the lunatic
27 April 2000 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A short and humorous look at one (of many) director's travails of working with the difficult Klaus Kinski. Schmoeller speaks directly to camera about his experiences on the film Crawlspace and intercuts his commentary with clips of Kinski in full nutter mode. Being a huge Kinski fan myself, I thoroughly enjoyed this little portrait of his insanity. However, it should be enjoyable to most film fans as it is succinct, witty and, best of all, true.
