Werner Herzog's breathtaking and evocative descent into madness is an immersive, unforgettable masterpiece, proving him to be one of the most important filmmakers of all time.

Shot on location along the depths of the Peruvian Amazon, Aguirre, the Wrath of God blurs the line between documentary and fiction as the harrowing filming conditions vividly creep into this epic saga of a 16th century conquistador in search of El Dorado. With a hypnotic score from avant-garde pop band Popol Vuh and a perfectly deranged performance from Klaus Kinski, Aguirre, the Wrath of God is a haunting vision of obsession and insanity.
