In the 1950s, an adolescent Werner Herzog was transfixed by a film performance of the young Klaus Kinski. Years later, they would share an apartment where, in an unabated, forty-eight-hour fit of rage, Kinski completely destroyed the bathroom. From this chaos, a violent, love-hate, profoundly creative partnership was born. In 1972, Herzog cast Kinski in Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972). Four more films would follow. In this personal documentary, Herzog traces the often violent ups and downs of their relationship, revisiting the various locations of their films and talking to the people they worked with.My Best Fiend featuring Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski is streaming on Fandor, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, free on Tubi, and 8 others. It's a biography and documentary movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 7.8 (11,565 votes).
