Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes (Aguirre, the Wrath of God) Reviews

"Aguirre, The Wrath of God" leaves you feeling as if you are watching a documentary rather than a fictionalized drama. In some ways, what you are seeing is nothing short of the absolute truth.

Idiosyncratic visionaries don't come any more idiosyncratic or visionary than Werner Herzog.

Observer [UK]

Herzog's riveting Brechtian epic about a catastrophic expedition across the Andes and down the Amazon in 1560 is arguably his best work ...

This is London

The whole movie merges landscapes and character with such force that, once seen, you never forget it.

HeyUGuys

Herzog's vision of man disregarding nature and bringing about his inevitable demise is an intoxicating one, and one that demands to be revisited through this wonderfully restored print.

It looks more magnificent and mad than ever, one of the great folies de grandeur of 1970s cinema, an expeditionary Conradian nightmare like Coppola's Apocalypse Now.

CinePassion

An essential hallucination, subsequently mined by Coppola, Weir and Malick but unsurpassed in its vision of the withering yet liberating madness beneath our armor

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

This 1972 German film eschews narrative for hallucinatory images and long takes that plunge you into the whirlpool of the main character's madness. It's less storytelling than a visually disturbing fever dream.

A seminal film without which we almost cerainly would not have with us either Apocalypse Now or much of the ouevre of Terence Malick.

There is a lingering voodoo in the movie that never lets you forget the folly of man's puny sins against a dark universal order of which insanity, sickness, and death are the inevitable symptoms.
