Fitzcarraldo Reviews

Herzog's film confirms that dreamers and their obsessions can give us otherwise unimaginable moments of pure beauty.

A abordagem de imersão adotada por Herzog, somada à performance intensa de Kinski, resulta numa experiência única e inesquecível.

| Original Score: 5/5

The film may have been intended as an ironic comment on the absurdity of human ambition, but it's an irony that explodes in Herzog's face.

If you have a dream, the only way to accomplish it is to face it head on. If your dream requires you to drag a massive boat up a mountainside, do it. So says director Werner Herzog in the bizarre but captivating Fitzcarraldo.

As a document of a quest and a dream, and as the record of man's audacity and foolish, visionary heroism, there has never been another movie like it.

If there's a point to this, it's what Herzog's point always is: That obsession can drive you nuts. I'm not sure I needed a freaky German traipsing through the jungle for 2 1/2 hours to drive that point home.

Fitzcarraldo is a more objective record of a comparable fever dream, and as such is the preeminent testament of Herzog's labor as a filmmaker.

It's a stunning spectacle, an adventure-comedy not quite like any other, and the most benign movie ever made about 19th-century capitalism running amok.

A mesmerizing and engaging work of art about the adventures of a wild-eyed Irish dreamer in the exotic jungle world of the upper Amazon.

Yes, the pursuit of dreams is vital to one's feeling of empowerment and fulfilment, but surely there are limits to the costs one should exact in their pursuit.
