Crucifixion Or Pardon?

Friends help you hide the bodies. True friends (Snark of the Covenant) warn you, when you announce plans to watch a film, that it contains This Sort Of Thing. The film is Werner Herzog’s Even Dwarves Started Small.

Nasty furry fanged beastie died for somebody’s sins, but not mine.

Monkey behind cut….

  1. Snark of the Covenant says:

    On the DVD commentary track Herzog acknowledges the controversy, but asserts that the monkey was just fine, completely unharmed, well-treated, seemed to enjoy the shoot. He certainly doesn’t appear to be in any distress. Regardless, I’m sure he had an easier time under Herzog’s direction than Kinski ever did (although Klaus did keep coming back for more, didn’t he?)

    Kinski didn’t work for semi-rotten fruit, either. I mean, he did for Aguirre, but so did everyone who worked on Aguirre.
