The Nobel Prize winner Harold Pinter expressed his admiration for Klimowski: ‘A few words about Klimowski? Impossible. You can't capture an imagination such as his in a sentence or two. He is a free man and you'll never catch him...He leads the field by a very long furlong, out on his own, making his own weather. He is Klimowski, unafraid.’
