Classic Tuesday: Aguirre, The Wrath of God
Our series of unmissable films continues...
13 September 2010This Tuesday, we are pleased to present the next in a series of classic movies that we're returning to the big screen. Described by Roger Ebert, the world's leading film critic as 'one of the great haunting visions of the cinema', Aguirre: The Wrath of God is a must-see for any film fan.
Based on the journals of Brother Gaspar de Carvajal, Aguirre, The Wrath of God is director Werner Herzog's hallucinatory tale of Spanish colonialists searching for El Dorado, the legendary city of gold, in 16th- century Peru. The film shares much in common with the style of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now, which makes for astonishing cinema, and haunting lead performances.
