Who is Althouse? * View only LAW posts * Contribute * Shop AMAZON*
Her half-sister started dating Roman Polanski when she was 15, so there might be something to this.
Kinski was German, she's lucky he didn't rape her and then have her sauteed for dinner. Germans are world leaders in western kink cuisine.
Done in one.Came for the Natasha Kinski reference.
This is not unusal to sell Movie or TV biographies. Allison Angrim who was Nellie on "Little House" as well as Mackenzie Phillips of "One Day at A Time" and Ashley Judd and others too numerous to mention.Most of them survive and thrive. Mackenzie is happy with a new family and Ashley Judd still acts and stars in TV movies for "Lifetime" and of course Allison went to law school and moved to Wisconsin and started a blog.So it can all work out ok in the end.
I love Klaus Kinski as an actor. Check out "My Best Fiend," Herzog's documentary about him.And "Aguirre the Wrath of God" -- one of my all time favorite films.
Daddy Dearest and 15 minutes or the real thing?If real, that's a grim kisser to come at you out of the dark.
If Kinski *wasn't* a sex-crazed narcissistic wack job I'd really like to know why he put so much effort into convincing the public he was one.I'm suspicious of any of these decades-after-the-fact abuse allegations, but honestly wouldn't it be more of a shock to learn that Kinski *wasn't* an abusive father? His other daughter sued him for libel, for pity's sake.
"So it can all work out ok in the end."Except for the abuse they suffered when young and the torment they had to endure in suffering in silence, or even as adults in trying to accomodate themselves emotionally and mentally to what happened to them.
He was certainly credible when he played the part of an evil madman. Maybe it wasn't acting.
So Aguirre wasn't so tough for him then.
Cook, if she suffered in silence she chose to do so.Kinski published an autobiography painting himself as a sex fiend; it included material offensive enough that his other daughter sued him for libel.That would have been a handy time to speak up, don't you think? Cripes, it isn't like the guy held a position of power. He was an art film actor with an international reputation as a nutcase. By waiting until a half-century after the alleged incidents -- and waiting until the accused was literally incapable of defending himself -- she critically undermines her claims.
Wonder if you saw (heard) this ScienceFriday talk with Werner Herzog re: Science and Art. http://www.bookofjoe.com/2013/01/when-werner-met-cormac.html
