Aroview: Colonialist visionary Klaus Kinski attempts to haul a huge riverboat over a hill in 19th century S. America with the help of Indian tribes-people (so as to finance an opera-house). This near-insane proposition was actually lived-out by the notorious director of this grandiose epic of Amazonian willpower.

4 stars (Very Good) An incredibly amazing feat by Herzog, however the film surrounding it has many unnecessary scenes, losing the viewers interest. The ending is still good, and this may actually be one of Herzog's few heartwarming films. ~dr.strangelove
4 stars (Very Good) Visually stunning, involving much cruelty in the making. Best viewed with Les Blank's documentary. The sight of the great Herzog declaiming against a backdrop of rain-forest that he "hates the forest" is memorable and thought-provoking. ~Sandy
4 stars (Very Good) Whilst no film involving Kinski could be boring this one takes an hour to really get up steam with some of the riverboat scenes that follow unforgettable. The crews that built the jungle sets deserve special praise. ~tubbs
