The Klaus Kinski Explosion

I can never get to much of a good Klaus Kinski story.

I’d heard about the TV series and the movie awhile back, and decided to watch it today. I was in a bit of a serious mood and didn’t want to bring myself down to tears by watching one of the many dramas my friends have recommended, when I stumbled along this- although I have to stay, opening with the topic of divorce and suicide, even if lightened with some physical slapstick, makes for pretty heavy fare too. 92 more words
