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

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.

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.
