ReelTalk Movie Reviews

Gramophone music soothes the savage breast, and operatic human excess defines director and obsession as well as his lead character.

O retrato extraordinário de um cineasta que, como o protagonista de seu filme, se entrega à obsessão por amor à Arte.

Old School Reviews

not only captures the dramatic moments where Herzog risks life and limb ... , but he includes small details that provide necessary natural respites from Herzog's 'madness'

Strangely, Burden of Dreams is a better film than Fitzcarraldo, if only because you get to see the fictional portions of the film along with the backstory

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

It's Fitzcarraldo with affirmed and not sublime biography; in essence, the same film without the pretense of fiction.

A searing voyeur's peek at two of cinema's most audacious talents -- and megalomaniacs.

Les Blank's Burden of Dreams is one of the most remarkable documentaries ever made about the making of a movie.

The film is at once funny and, in its depiction of the scant differences between art and megalomania, somewhat frightening.
