That's funny. I was saying to myself, "maybe I should find a youtube video from Nosferatu and post it for Halloween." I was thinking of the scene where they're carrying coffins through the town square.
Liam,That'd be a good one! Were you able to find it?
Klaus Kinski makes a good dracula - harldly needs makeup :) Good youtube choice for halloween. I have one in mind myself.
Klaus Kinski makes a good dracula - hardly needs makeup :)That's exactly what I was thinking!I might make November Klaus Kinski month.
No, I didn't look -- you get the scoop. Klaus Kinski month, yes! Aguirre, the Wrath of God!
Ooh. And I posted a video of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown." You guys are way too cool for me.I must confess, I've never seen either version of Nosferatu, Murnau's original silent or Herzog's. Might have to watch one tonight.Klaus Kinski month? That's cool. Though I would prefer a Nastassja Kinksi month.
Heh - maybe this Kinski movie would make the cut for your "month of Kinski" posts ... Star Knight ... " The local alchemist, played with bug-eyed zeal by the always-insane Klaus Kinski ..." at Flicks of Shame :)
William,Don't feel bad, I love the Charlie Brown Great Pumpkin Special. Sally's rant in the pumpkin patch is one of the all-time greats.Klaus Kinski month? That's cool. Though I would prefer a Nastassja Kinksi month.You can put up a clip from Cat People.We have a daughter, btw, nick-named Tess.
Flicks of Shame :):-D
So, La Reina and I watched this last night. We both thought it was very good. Great atmosphere - very creepy, from the opening scene all the way through.Then I got in trouble because in the frightening mood afterwards, I acted like Kinski for a moment and scared her to death. Had to spend the next hour apologizing!
BTW, I didn't realize Brunoi Ganz was in it - one of my favorite actors.
William,What are you, a method-actor or something? Did you get a little too nippy?Yes, Bruno Ganz is very good.I haven't seen this film in a long long time... I saw it at the Harvard Square Cinema by myself. I remember it being ver dark and gothic. Slow-paced, but good nonetheless.Oddly enough, my favorite Dracula adaptation was a 1973 made-for-TV version starring Jack Palance.
Hmm... Hard to imagine Palance as Dracula, but it's interesting watching the trailer.In all honesty, I haven't seen many Dracula movies. I'm not even sure I've seen the Lugosi version all the way through, though I may have when I was kid. Saw a few moments of the Coppola version, which didn't make me want to run out and watch the whole thing.
