Wrath of God

I sat through 95 minutes of cinema heaven: Werner Herzog's "Aguirre, Wrath of God" was in the DVD player. I bought this DVD for a dollar in a book-sale. Ha!

Along with Coppola's river movie, "Aguirre" is the other great river movie. And since storms and seas and water are very much the zeitgeist, not to mention foolish and dangerous missions in quest of "Oil Dorado" in Iraq, the film packed an unusual impact.
