Maverick German filmmaker Herzog takes best mate turned arch-enemy Klaus Kinski into the Peruvian rainforest for
Aguirre, Wrath Of God
, the tempestuous duo’s first collaboration.
When Kinski tries to desert, Herzog threatens to shoot him before turning the gun on himself: “The bastard understood it was not a joke.”
Kinski snapped back: “Huge red ants should piss into his lying eyes, gobble up his balls, penetrate his asshole and eat his guts.”
