AGUIRRE, WRATH OF GOD (Mexico/Germany, 1972, 95mins, Subtitled, Cert PG)

Shot entirely on location in the Amazonian jungle, this film stars the legendarily volatile Klaus Kinski as a power-crazed 16th century Spanish explorer who leads an unruly band of conquistadors on a doomed expedition in search of El Dorado, the fabled City of Gold. A visceral, ambitious exploration of megalomania and savage beauty, the film remains one of Werner Herzog’s most outstanding directorial achievements and one of German cinema’s all time totemic masterpieces.
