AKA: The Klaus Kinski episode. 


Kinski is one of cinema's most controversial icons, and left us with a set of legendary films, especially his set of 5 collaborations with Werner Herzog, but also a long, long line of B- and C-grade paycheck films.


In this episode we will dissect his career through two films, one representing his highest achievements, one representing his lowest gutter trash, and he just happens to be playing the very same character in both of them: Nosferatu (perhaps his most iconic role).
