  1. excetos's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    The pace and the drive of this movie left me astonished. I will soon be reading Conquest of the Useless by Herzog and can't wait to dive a bit more into Fitzcarraldo's vast universe condensed down to the South American ecosystem.

  2. Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Probably one of the most unethically made movies ever, but it is undeniably a spectacle worthy of study. The movie is incredibly real with its use of numerous extras and the real problem of getting that steamship across the mountain. Kinski's bell tower screaming, revenge threats, and agape love for the opera make up one of those all time great performances ( even though Kinski was a complete fucking piece of shit).

  3. Muraki's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    A masterpiece. Every man should see this movie.

  4. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Further reading into the actual production may be required just on how similar the story is and the actual effort of filming the thing was. That boat was really hauled up a hill, no special effects. Also Fitzcarraldo is an interesting person on his passion for opera which keeps the intrigue going for the films final act, I was actually expecting a Cannibal Holocaust ending with the way the natives just help him out.

  5. Mahda Purmahdi's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Not only it is dull and uninteresting, but also it seems very inhuman, both behind and in front of the camera.

  6. frisco's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    In my opinion, a wonderful example of Amazonian colonialism at the turn of the 20th century. The opera as if it were the religion, bringing European culture to the remote world.

  7. Mitra Yousefi's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    I did not get the point of this film: entrepreneur dreamers can move the mountain with exploiting the indigenous people and their beliefs?

  9. dionysus67's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    One of the most inspired ventures in film history with images indelibly inscribed into the collective cinematic consciousness. (What a creatively insane idea to lift the steamboat over a hill in the jungle!) As always, Kinski energizes the screen with a commanding presence of a 'benign' colonialist seer who orchestrates a symphony of labor and art in making his vision possible. A megalomaniac and redeeming epic!

  10. raffael's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Sehr beeindruckendes Werk - fast schon konservative Filmkunst für Werner Herzog - überragende schauspielerische Leistung und Regie. Sonderbar fand ich allerdings wie häufig sich der Blick mancher Darsteller in die Kamera verirrt hat - das ist mir so auch noch nie woanders in dem Maße aufgefallen.

  11. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Herzog is a fine cynic. His observations about humankind's stridency have much more heart and soul than this film about the size of one's vision and a quest for satisfaction. Long-winded and winding, Fitzcarraldo, doesn't often move around emotions or create characters that you admire/root for/hate. I wish Herzog was sympathetic to, or vexed, Kinski's character, instead of having a detached observation from.

  12. ceknklsn's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    60/100 --- Muhteşem mesaj, saçmalıklarla dolu senaryo(kızılderililerin müzik etkisiyle bu tipleri tanrı sanması), mesaja ters düşen hareketler(Doğanın büyük oranda tahrip edilmesi-figüranların onlarcasının yaralanması), amatörce diyaloglar... Sonuç olarak ise anti kapitalizm ve sömürgecilik mesajlarının hafızamda yok olması. ---

  14. vizija's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Conquistador of the Useless. 4+

  15. João Ricardo's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Um filme que parecia impossível sobre sonhos humanos impossíveis que contrastam com a natureza tornado possível. Um final incrível e inesquecível! Uma obra prima.

  16. Viola Valéry's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Dreamers can move mountains!!!

  17. lbunuel's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    What interests me in Fitzcarraldo is how Herzog's search for maximalism comes to life without any genuine force. Trying to replicate the hypnotic magic of Aguirre, he created a film that is a testament to his own creative impotence - even his megalomania here is staged, gutless. It smells of seriousness, of sad self-conscience, of fading power: a dull & fake film that pretends to believe in its own "significance".

  20. Josh's rating of the film Fitzcarraldo

    Paired with Burden of Dreams, maybe the best double feature of all time.
