I asked on a movie forum if anyone had some recomendation about movies with weirdos living inside the walls in other peoples houses or similar. I got recommended this one. Don’t know how I missed this one , it has my favourite creepy guy Klaus Kinski in the lead. And sure he is creepy here, proberly the creepiest I have ever seen him, just wonderful! It has a made-for-TV feeling, and I can’t find any information if it was ever released on the big screen. Although there are real bonkers stuff in this I still wished it would have had more “spying and perversion” than what it has, but that could only be my twisted brain that want that :-).
Supposly taking place somewhere in the USA, but it was filmed at the Empire Studios, Rome, Lazio, Italy.
David Schmoeller had a lot of trouble directing Klaus Kinski. For example, Kinski refused to listen to basic commands such as “action” and “cut”. Schmoeller later made a short film about his problems with Klaus Kinski called Please Kill Mr. Kinski (1999).
I watched a version on YouTube that I guess is a DVD rip or something. Both video and audio is above average I think but I would LOVE to see a deluxe blu-ray version of this with a nice making-of documentary.
