The English version of Aguirre is on YouTube, anyone seen it?
Wow, never knew there was an english language version of this out there. It's also one of my favourite films of all time, not like any other film, a true journey into madness. Thanks for the link, English dub makes it easier to recommend to people!
Aguirre! I was obsessed with this for so long! But definitely watch the English Dub to get the most out of it in my opinion.
I see you also mentioned Fitzcarraldo and it is the Herzog film most compared to Aguirre but for me the other great Herzog masterpiece is The Enigma of Kasper Hauser if you haven't seen that....
