A boxset containing all the collaborations between Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski.AGUIRRE, THE MAN OF GOD: Widely considered to be Herzog's finest film, is the tale of Spanish colonialists searching for El Dorado, the legendary city of gold, in 16th-century Peru. NOSFERATU: PHANTOM DER NACHT: Stark, symbolic cinematography and intensely stylised performances relating the age-old tale of Count Dracula. Klaus Kinski portrays the Dracula character with a silent intensity, tingeing the vampire's inhuman monstrosity with a deep sense of pathos and longing. WOYZECK: Based on Georg Buchner's unfinished play, the film is a dark study of a lowly German flunky (Klaus Kinski) who, to earn much-needed extra money, volunteers for a local doctor's strange experiments, which push him to murderous insanity. FITZCARRALDO: Klaus Kinski gives a terrifying and determined portrayal of mad genius Fitzcarraldo, whose twin goals of making a fortune off the Amazon rubber trade and bringing an opera house to the jungle are a metaphor for the impact of civilization on the natural world. COBRA VERDE: Filmed in Ghana, Brazil, and Colombia, COBRA VERDE is a visually astonishing true-life tale about a Brazilian bandit known as Cobra Verde who is exiled to West Africa to rejuvenate the slave trade. Also includes MY BEST FRIEND, a documentary film exploring the relationship between Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski.
