  • Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    1973. West Germany. Directed by Werner Herzog. With Klaus Kinski, Helena Rojo, Ruy Guerra, Del Negro. Herzog, like Fassbinder, is a unique talent who shot this 16th-century tale on location in the Amazon. Kinski, the movies’ perfect modern madman (he played Dracula and Jack the Ripper, among others) is terrific as the obsessed seeker of the mythical “Seven Cities of Gold.” Herzog is the embodiment of auteurism in creating his vision of a private universe, perhaps in the tradition of Richard Wagner. In German; English subtitles. 95 min.
