"The gypsies. Some of them, have been on the other side. They know."
I sunk so deeply into Nosferatu within it's first hour. There is so much curiosity, beauty, and fear dripping from this masterpiece. I have gained much respect for Herzog through just three of his films, which have all have been unforgettable experiences. I haven't delved deep into German cinema. So the style here seems very foreign, yet forgiving. It's impressive; pure talent and ambition. The vampire is a role built almost solely for Klaus Kinski , who has also become one of my favorite actors. I'm glad this wasn't the first film I saw him in. Dracula is a character you simply can't unsee. Possibly even altering my perspective of his other great performances such as the mad music lover Fitzcarraldo. Nosferatu is unable to be pinned to a genre. The journey to Transylvania, the castle, the rats, the woman... It traverses drama, romance, and horror.
