This is not the first time I have questioned Ebert's tastes in films, and Kinski couldn't have over acted more it if he changed his name to AL Pachino.

P.S. There is a film about making Aguirre. Suggesting that be made available on Kanopy.

The Burden of Dreams is available on Kanopy, but a library needs to have it in their catalogue. All you need to do is ask a librarian how you'd go about requesting that they get it and give an explanation relating to film's educational value to whoever it is managing the library's electronic ...Read more

A shocking and brilliant delve into the madness of humanity and the frightening jungle of the unknown. The cinematography is amazing in this influential classic.

I must be missing something..... There is nothing in this movie that appeals to me except, perhaps, the photography.

Unlike most "adventure" films, this one could not be staged. One cannot tame butterflies, mice, monkeys, wild rivers. The camera crew and the actors shared an adventure...this time a true one.

This movie requires a bit of patience and attention, but it is a very rewarding experience. Werner Hertzog filmed this 40+ years ago and has since done every kind of story even becoming an accomplished documentary filmmaker.

Not everything is for everyone. You can dislike or hate a film and someone else could love it.
It’s a matter of taste and because you don’t like it, doesn’t make it bad, it only makes it your opinion!

A powerful film that certainly comes as no surprise to be an inspiration to directors like Francis Ford Coppola when working on Apocalypse Now. Werner Herzog is a master of cinema who still makes memorable films to this day, but his partnership with Klaus Kinski is one that will be remembered ...Read more

A powerful film about an often forgotten era of history. The Peruvian landscape is devastating and while this movie is no comedy, it's certainly a fish-out-of-water story. Despite being 45 years old it's certainly still worth a visit.
