Aguirre, the Wrath of God (Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes) is a German film from 1972 written and directed by auteur Werner Herzog and staring Herzog’s best friend and mortal enemy, Klaus Kinski. It’s the middle of the 16th century, after destroying the Incan Empire, Pizzaro leads his army through the Andes mountains in search of El Dorado, the city of gold. One of his conquistadors, Don Lope de Aguirre, is going insane in the hot jungle, and dreams of taking over all of South America. He splits off, forms his own army, and leads them to their doom. Behind the scene footage of the film was included in the documentary “My Best Fiend,â€? the story of Herzog and Kinski’s working and personal relationships. Kinski, as usual, was a menace on the set. At one point, following a fit of rage, he fired three rounds into a nearby tent, injuring an extra’s finger. When Kinski finally threatened to leave the set, Herzog told him if he did, he would shoot him and then himself. The film’s production continued.moreless
