Klaus Kinski: Jesus Christ the Savior
By Peter Geyer
Notorious German actor Klaus Kinski is Jesus in this long-lost one-man show recorded in Berlin in 1971. Kinski, as always, is completely unhinged. Almost immediately the hecklers start in, pushing him into a rage. You have never seen anything like this before, a riveting document of one man vs. an audience of 5,000. And despite the chaos, Kinski somehow manages to convey the severe, uncompromising, and truly radical ideas of some of Christ's teachings. (1971/restored in 2008, 84 min, digital)
