Time Out says

Not, agreed, one of Herzog's most distinctive, original or audacious documentaries, but given the crazed nature of his subject - former frequent collaborator Klaus Kinski - it's still a hugely entertaining foray into personal reminiscence and movie archaeology. Scattered among the interviews and Herzog's own deadpan stories of his altercations with the late actor (which, of course, confirm suspicions that the director himself is hardly the most conventional fellow on earth) is some marvellous behind-the-scenes archive footage. But it's also a fascinating document on the genesis of some extraordinary movies, with pristine clips reminding one of Herzog's own glorious past as a creator of visionary fictions.
