Werner Herzog has become quite a popular figure in American Culture during the late 2010's . Though I doubt many have seen this masterpiece but I hope that will change. There are few moments in film that present such an accomplishment as "Fitzcarraldo" delivers in a new and challenging way. It's exciting, dark and mysterious. There's a lot to speculate here and I'm not going to dig into mastermind Werner Herzog's intention with this expedition without further inspection. I know there's a lot to see and hear. Kinski's character is debatably both mad and ignorant, a wild genius pursuing passion against the most monstrous odds; he's so thrilling to watch because he's so hard to understand.
