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.

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.

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.
