  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Never has a sad and mad expedition been shown with such tragic and insanity as with this one. In the middle stands Klaus Kinski doing one of his most famous trademark roles by being only himself at his most crazed and ogre-like. The few women that surrounds him are equally powerful and the jungle cinematography phenomenal. What Werner Herzog got out of his lousy budget and gonzo filming is a miracle in itself.

  2. Carolina Frade's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    first shot. last shot. other than that it's monty python without the comedy. Klaus Kinski is the most revolting human being ever conceived, such an abomination that Aguirre is a decent vehicle for his existence to be somewhat tolerable.

  3. Sin título.'s rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

  4. Thoke's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Grandios fever nightmare. Take away the grandiosity it feels quite stale to me, but it redeems itself fully in the final scenes with as beautiful as haunting images. Very poetic visuals of animals - visuals which will definetly by what I remember this film for.

  5. Alex Shuster's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    A man untrustworthy. Aguirre is the person you can find in many humans, but his presence is harsh and gloomy.

  6. Anca.'s rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

  7. Matthew Almont's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    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.

  8. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Raft down river, die, repeat. Yep that sounds like insanity to me. Can't say I loved it; but I see where the hype comes from. Very clever use of documentary-style camera work

  9. MisterColo93's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

  10. João Valadão's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

  11. lbunuel's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    A film of such Nietzschean power that nothing can rival its genuine madness, its totalizing force. An ideologically dangerous masterpiece that simultaneously denounces and fantasizes about colonization & the triumph of individuality vs the weakness of collective thought.

  12. ginobartolomi's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    underacted and one dimensional. too bad, 'cause it's gorgeous to look at

  13. LibertyCapz's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Highly impressive achievement in film-making considering the locations and year of recording. Must have been a total pain in the ass to make, made it all the more enjoyable to watch for me though. Also love the unscripted scenes where Herzog included some of the surrounding wildlife (minus the monkey scene of course), really felt like they gave it all a sense of reality, elegance and wonder.

  14. Aivaras_Z's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    You can see where "Apocalypse Now" may have gotten its inspiration. A mesmerizing classic, exploring themes of megalomania and over-reliance on the powers of civilization. A sparse, yet highly effective soundtrack only enhances the hypnotic trip into the heart of madness.

  15. LauraPalmer's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Rewatched and re-loved. Unforgettable shots.

  16. redux's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Brilliant allegory of German Fascism.

  17. Aardsy's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

  18. R's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    a pretty overrated 'film'...all the praise seems to come from the filming style, the difficulty of making the film, the odd relationship between director-actor. interesting conceptual points but makes for about an hour of flat moving images with half an hour of brilliance at the end. will have to watch again

  19. Olivier Mouchel's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Un des grands chefs d'oeuvre de Herzog et un de ses thèmes chers, la mégalomanie (et par extension la folie de l'homme). Habité par un acteur à la démesure du rôle : Klaus Kinski ! Un film indispensable qui a influencé entre autres Coppola (Apocalypse Now) et Terrence Malick (le rapport de l'homme à la nature).

  20. Galou's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Déçu. Je m'attendais à un chef-d'oeuvre, j'ai trouvé un bon film. Oui Kinski est très bon, mais après un premier plan merveilleux on s'enfonce avec ces conquérants dans la boue. C'était peut-être l'objectif d'Herzog ?

  21. sksksksk's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

  22. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    The after-effects of trepanning your skull and siphoning in swamp water. It's remarkable. Manages to be authentically hallucinogenic without being whatsoever druggy. One of the few films I would love to see in 4D... but a 4D that is genuinely quite painful and even dangerous.

  23. Pierre.F's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Une performance dingue de Klaus Kinski et des images aussi fortes de Herzog. Il a une manière très vivante de filmer cette épisode de la colonisation espagnole en Amérique du Sud qui déjoue les codes des vieux péplum ou films historiques. Une descente au enfer inoubliable par Kinski.

  24. Danny Mansfield's rating of the film Aguirre, the Wrath of God

    Haunting and atmospheric. Don't watch expecting an epic battle movie, but it is captivating for the experience all the same. Excellent performance by Klaus Kinski.
