(No reviews yet) Write a Review

This early masterpiece from legendary German director Werner Herzog (FitzcarraldoGrizzly ManCave of Forgotten Dreams and Nosferatu the Vampyre) is available in a newly restored version. Shot entirely on location in the wild Amazonian jungle, Aguirre stars the volatile German star, and Herzog's regular, Klaus Kinski as a power-crazed explorer in sixteenth-century South America who leads a band of conquistadors through the Amazon in search of El Dorado. An ambitious exploration of doomed adventure and savage beauty, Aguirre remains one of Herzog's most extraordinary and brilliant achievements. This disc also includes three short documentaries by Herzog, plus his 1971 documentary Fata Morgana.
