Aguirre, The Wrath of God (rewatch)

Posted by martinteller on February 19, 2005

Here we have three talents at the top of their games.  Florian Fricke (Popul Vuh) delivers his finest score, an otherworldly miasma of odd sounds.  Klaus Kinski is hypnotic as the megalomaniacal title character, driven by ambition and delusion.  And Werner Herzog does what he does best: transports us to strange and exotic corners of existence, setting up one mysterious image after another.  Haunting and mesmerizing.  Rating: 10
