Klaus Kinski is this movie. His craziness and visage command every inch of the screen. His monumental performance aside, the film is an excellent study in obsession and greed that holds up as a superb action/adventure film. The photography, it should be mentioned, is some of Herzog's most lush and expressive.

Stunning and breathtaking movie, in every way. The atmosphere is what makes this movie. The cinematography, the music score, Kinski. It unfolds before your eyes like a poem.

If your like Kinsky, watch it. If you like New world, watch it. If you like documentaries, watch it. Herzog uses Kinsky's madness to portray, (yeah, that) the conquering madness. Finding the new world was good, was bad, but also fascinating and intriguing. The movie is revolutionary, with incredibles landscapes and hypnotic score that... penetrates your brain from times, making you part of the scenario. Masterpiece with capital M.

Bizarre but brilliant jungle film.

Visually breathtaking costume epic with one of cinema's great villains, the mad conquistador Don Lope de Aguirre, leading audiences on a surreal adventure into the Amazon as Aguirre feverishly searches for El Dorado.
Set against the emerald green backdrop of Peru, Aguirre leads a mad quest for riches into the dangerous jungles with a motley band of equally greedy explorers. Like APOCALYPSE NOW, the characters enter the jungle one way but leave it entirely transformed, or dead. The final sequence demonstrates how man's folly will lead to his downfall and then the forces of nature will take back what's theirs.
Director Wernor Herzog famously ventured into the South American jungle with only the cast and 8 fellow crewmembers to make this movie. No storyboards were used requiring many sce...

Our Daily Free Stream: Werner Herzog - Aguirre. Herzog bietet neuerdings online seine Dienste an, uns in sein Handwerk einzuweisen. Doch kann man im Internet lernen, wie man einen Aguirre filmt? Ein Fluss, den Gott nie beendete - dort spielt Werner Herzogs Aguirre. Die letzten Mitglieder einer spanischen Expedition, auf der Suche nach der Goldstadt El Dorado. Sie brüllen die eingeborenen Indianer an, versuchen mit Hilfe ihrer Sklaven zu übersetzen. Ein Priester hält ihnen die Bibel, das Wort Gottes, entgegen. Vergeblich, El Dorado muss am Ende dieses Flusses liegen. Weiter, immer weiter... Werner Herzogs Aguirre ist eine der eindringlichsten Visionen des Kinos. Die verdammte Expedition des Konquistadors Gonzalo Pizarro, der im 16. Jahrhundert eine Handvoll Männer in den Regenwald Perus fü...

Aguirre, Wrath of God review

A fierce Spanish soldier named Lope de Aguirre (Klaus Kinski ) heads a group of men together with Gonzalo Pizarro (Alejandro Repullés) down the Amazon River in South America to search for the legendary city of gold in El Dorado. They pass thru a river but eventually reach shore. Don Fernando de Guzman becomes the new leader while Aguirre in second command. The men encounter hardships along the way. The score of the film was heavenly and majestic which was suited for the times. Directing style was realistic, as if getting the feeling you were with them in the voyage. Utilization of nature and living things around was evident which shows the brilliance of the cinematographer, which reminded me of the film of Malick, Tree of Life.

Performances and costumes were wonderful as well. ...
