Please Kill Mr. Kinski (1999)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

How many director's wanted to kill him?

Funny short film from director David Schmoeller about his one film with Klaus Kinski. Kinski was known to hate directors and Schmoeller talks about them two making the horror film Crawlspace and how his crew was personally asking him to kill the actor. There's some very funny footage of Kinski being interviewed and venting about directors.

If you're a fan of Kinski then this is a must see.

Available on DVD through Troma.
