Aguirre: The Wrath of God this week.  The Princess Bride next week.  As always, follow along on Nathaniel’s.

 

Aguirre: The Wrath of God – December 29, 1972

Director: Werner Herzog
Producer: Werner Herzog
Writers: Werner Herzog
Actors: Klaus Kinski, Helene Rojo, Ruy Guerra, Del Negro
Studio: Werner Herzog Filmproduktion, Hessischer Rundfunk
Distributor: Werner Herzog Filmproduktion

The course of the conversation:

The guys fail so hard at pronouncing the name of the movie and main character.

Kinski and Herzog had an… interesting relationship.

The benefits of not being a cackling madman.

Turns out the Amazon is an interesting place.

Not a lot of acting going on in the movie outside of the main characters.

Surreality in situations that feel very real.

The destruction of humans and humanity.

What was the point?  Does it need a point?

MONKEY FREEDOM!

Nathaniel: It aimed for the stars, and hit the moon.

Michael: Blade Runner had philosophy without story support.  Aguirre has story without philosophical support.

Jonathan: Aguirre would be interesting if I could connect with any of the characters.

Rumors of our podfade have been greatly exaggerated!  Apologies for the long delay.  Between business trips, Gen Con prep, Gen Con itself, post-Gen Con malaise, the site being down, Jonathan's anniversary, etc., it's been a rough couple of months.  But we're back!...
