Aguirre: The Wrath of God

Werner Herzog's 1972 film plays like a structural inversion of his Every Man for Himself and God Against All, with a party of Spanish conquistadores gradually succumbing to Herzog's animistic vision of nature as they plow through the Brazilian jungles in search of El Dorado. As is too often the case in Herzog's films, the man-versus-nature theme is put a little too schematically, but Aguirre is rife with the disquieting, surrealistic images that are the purest expression of his considerable talent. In German with subtitles.
