...this Onion AV Club article/interview (http://www.avclub.com/articles/udo-kier,49362/) will probably change your mind.

I'd love to sit down and have a few beers with that guy and just let him talk about his life. What an odd dude.

The best quote?

"I cannot answer you, because it’s totally unknown to me what you just asked me, and also very boring."

I'm fond of this line: "I was Christian von Meruh, his assistant, who falls in love with the girl with the big tits."

Brilliant. And my man-crush on Udo grows even stronger...

Seems like an interesting dude. I LOVE Blood For Dracula as well and you have to be at least a little crazy to work with Paul Morrisey.

I wish a ton of 70s Udo films would come out of the woodwork. *sigh*

Ones that don't exist, haha. I just wish there was more of him from that decade.

Yeah, like some lost 3-hour epic starring Udo and Little Joe as gay New York detectives investigating a series of murders, directed by Andy Warhol and written by Paul Morrissey. And all of Udo's dialogue is German language with subtitles and Joe just agrees with everything he says, without understanding a word. Ditto Udo when Joe is speaking. Lots of gore courtesy of Carlo Rambaldi and some hardcore scenes (gay and straight). Includes previously unreleased music by The Velvet Underground.

I agree, it would be awesome.

I'd settle for a new film with Udo and Helmut Berger, directed by Ulli Lommel. Probably about some serial killer. Berger would look angry and pissed off at the whole enterprise, Kier would deliver his lines with aplomb, and Lommel would wax lyrical about the heavy-handed symbolism of the whole thing.

Or even better, a 'meta' film about the making of a picture with Kier and Berger, and their run-ins with film's director, played by Lommel. Fuggin' marvelous idea.

I would blind buy all of this... limited editions, $35 a piece!

I just noticed that the fellow who wrote the article also wrote a excellent book on Canadian Horror films called THEY CAME FROM WITHIN.

actually there is a "lost" 70ies udo kier movie called l'amour est un fleuve en russie aka spermula (1976). of course there are some versions floating around the net, but I think they're all cut and the quality is really bad (unwatchable imho). I'm dying to see this!

I quite like this movie. Unwatchable is a matter of how much you wish to see the movie. With some films that are only available in poor condition, I will make exceptions. Reminds me of 6th generation copies of italian horror in the 70s/80s, or the elusive 'A Clockwork Orange' in the UK.
