Nathan Hopkins's rating of the film Burden of Dreams

It's about the making of Fitzcarraldo. But it isn't. It successfully manages to capture the essence of trying to achieve something grand, amidst the backdrop of dense jungle and with poignant messages on life outside the accepted bounds of human living. Herzog's dreamy, meandering speeches and commentary make this unforgettable.
