This is an exhibit of a very disturbed man, who was part genius, part eccentric and part mad but a true (100%) Artist. Klaus Kinski was a very good actor and he tried this "show" called Jesus Christ Saviour. Many people think he was trying to be Jesus (or impersonating him). That is one way to look at it of course, but I think he tried to convert the bible (New Testament) into modern times. Most of the things he says here, are included in the Bible. This movie being a documentary that actually has no voice over, but only Kinski doing his monologue, though very often interrupted by some members of the audience.

There is so much to be said, about a man that evidently thinks he was better than most other people, who also thinks he was misunderstood. The latter being of course more than true, but his erratic behaviour didn't help much either. But this "concert" (let's call it that) on display here, actually had some valid points. You almost wish people would not have interrupted him, making him go offstage a couple of times. Still returning after a while, but why would you do that? You don't go to the Opera and shout at the actors, now do you? Either like what you see or leave the room.

The fact, that he was able to switch from (almost) normal to maniac rage, made him so appealing to many. A controversial figure in German film history, he definitely will make you want to know more about him ... Which would lead you to the movie "Mein liebster Feind", where Werner Herzog talks a lot about his "favorite" actor. Watch this and be amazed (and frightened maybe), by one of the best artists German cinema has produced!
