  1. You’ve seen a lot of Herzog! Aguirre is such a classic film. I also liked Kasper Hauser, but not Fitzcarraldo. Stroszek I saw at the time, but I can’t remember it well. But Aguirre is the one, isn’t it.

  2. Aguirre is most certainly a masterpiece of German Cinema. I read somewhere that it’s style influenced Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now. Interesting isn’t it? 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
