Comments

What a trip. "Aguirre: The Wrath of God"has to be experienced.Klaus Kinski played the power hungry leader of a mutiny of a group of Spaniards in search of El Dorado.His portrayal is so powerful that he almost washes out the rest of the cast.He plays Aguirre as a madman slowly drifting away from sanity as the raft floats down the river.His presence is so powerful that scenes not containing him seem empty and you almost fear him at the same time you are fascinated by him.See it.It is a classic.
