I can see your point. Instead, I guess should have said: " I'm guessing you'd think differently if an actor raped someone you care about, but as that isn't the case, carry on being mesmerized by child rapists." Is that better? Were you defending Kinski or Supermallet or both? At any rate, I didn't think I was casting any stones, and I certainly haven't been trying to make unfunny jokes or bringing people's mothers into the discussion. But, just so we're clear here, I'm the one acting like a teenager. Yep, sounds about right.

If this thread is to be taken seriously, then I firmly believe the internet owes this man an apology:





Just sayin'.

But Mel said WORDS! Horrible, horrible words! He can't be forgiven! He's also a religious man. The worst type of scum on the Planet.

I'm going to go watch Mad Max now.

Strange she waits to reveal it in a book; for what it's worth his other daughter, Nastassja, only claimed he was verbally and psychologically abusive and she was estranged from him for years.

In fact, I seem to recall, when he wrote his absurdly fabricated autobiography, Nastassja sued him for libel after he implied he had slept with her.

The ravings of Klaus Kinski, a totally insane motherfucker. He was an absolutely batshit crazy man. I wouldn't necessarily believe anything that KK ever said. Here's an excerpt from his memoir "All I Need Is Love." This is not a sane person:

"Although I'm trying to escape his eye, Herzog sticks to me like an outhouse fly. The mere thought of his existence here in this wilderness makes me sick. When I see him approaching from afar, I scream at him to stop, that he stinks, that he disgusts me. That I don't want to hear his bullshit. That I can't bear him!

I always hope he'll attack me. Then I'd push him into an eddy full of bloodthirsty piranhas and watch them tear him to pieces.

He should be thrown to the crocodiles alive! An anaconda should throttle him slowly! The sting of a deadly spider should paralyze him! His brain should burst from the most poisonous of snakes! Panthers shouldn't slit him open with their claws, that would be too good for him! No. Big red ants should piss in his eyes, eat his balls, penetrate his asshole, and eat his guts! Syphillis! Malaria! Yellow fever! Leprosy! In vain. The more I wish the most horrible of deaths on him and treat him like the scum that he is, the less I can get rid of him."


He was a magnificent actor though, and a screen legend unlike any other.

Here he goes crazy on the interviewer (after some babble and mutual provocation). Click on CC if you need Eng. subs. There's another, nuttier interview, but it's only in German.

I'm trying to think of any Klaus Kinski performance I've seen but nothing comes to mind. Heck, I can't even think what the guy even looks like.

You mean Napoleon. Responsible for the deaths of millions of people and the still-used Napoleonic Code.

And he gave us that horrid vanilla, chocolate, and strawberry ice cream combo. The first two flavors are fine but the strawberry is

Maybe he was so fucked up that he slept with the wrong daughter.

Roc, we already know you're DVDTalk's resident "I don't know who anyone is" guy (seriously, I can't count how many celebrity threads you've posted "who's this?")

Lots of the greatest artists and thinkers through history have also been sick bastards. That's just the way it goes. If your goal in life is to avoid experiencing any art or using any scientific advancement that was created by people who were also sick bastards, then you're in for a rude awakening.

To be fair, most "celebrities" you guys talk about are bloggers and pretty much celebrities in thir own minds.

But in this case I know the name and assumed I was familiar with his work. But for the life of me, I was drawing a blank when trying to think of films in which I'd seen him and then realized I couldn't even think of what he looked like.

I was never a fan of Kinski so I don't feel the need to furiously defend him.

Agreed.

While what Kinski is being accused of is absolutely irredeemable, there is a disconnect at some point. While you might hate Kinski, what about all the other people who contributed to a given movie?

And while again it's not as bad as child rape, there are so many horrible people in Hollywood. Hitchcock & Kubrick weren't exactly nice people. And most of what we know about celebrities are via publicity, who can say that even the ones with friendly images are their real images?

If you were cool with Kinski prior to this reveal then you were already tolerant of quite a bit. Kinski is famous for being psychotic. It makes him interesting and it's almost comedic to a point, but I'm sure it was never a laughing matter to the people around him.

Definitely saw the film (childhood favorite) but don't remember him being in it at all.

Clearly, I was never a fan of his.

Re: Klaus Kinski's daughter claims he raped her multiple times starting when she was

If Kinski did rape her. Well that sucks and it sucks even worse that nothing can be done about it.

That doesn't stop him from being one of the greatest actors alive and the overall quality of his works.

I don't like Polanski as person but his direction is great and I appreciate his talent in the craft. I'd rather have him be punished for the rape he commited than have him direct anymore. That doesn't deter him from being a great director.

People need to separate these entities. Just because they do or did something bad doesn't all of a sudden destroy quality material they've done. Just makes them shitty people on a personal level.
