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

October 1, 2018
Aguirre is a compelling piece of historical fiction that lingers in the memory largely because of its lush, claustrophobic atmosphere and the towering presence of Kinski.

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

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.

A journey down river to the mouth of Hell, but also so much more.

Made for buttons, it's an awesome feat of filmmaking.

The acting is properly larger than life, especially Klaus Kinski as the title character, a lean, driven but imposing man who has heads lopped off when in any way interfered with in his task of destruction and exploration.

The powerful and near demonic screen presence of Klaus Kinski, combined with the very real danger of the nature that surrounds him and Herzog's gift for making every shot count, is quite remarkable.

One of the great haunting visions of the cinema.
