Fitzcarraldo

This is kind of like a quirky, more likable version of Herzog's Aquirre: The Wrath of God. I don't think it's quite as captivating or brilliant insane as that film, but it's pretty good, and treats you to the amazing sight of a large boat being dragged up a mountain.

Nothing to say about this one but it did remind me of seeing "encounters at the end of the world" which was an excellent experience. Herzog makes a documentary that is funny, interesting, and a little bit spiritual without being saccharine.
