"13.7. Päätin tutustuttaa vastasyntyneen poikani jo hyvissä ajoin Herzogin tuotantoon ja ennen kaikkea Klaus Kinskiin, vaikka lapsen deklaratiivisen muistin kehitys alkaakin vasta lähemmäksi kolmea ikävuotta tultaessa. Fitzcarraldossa, kuten monissa muissakin Herzogin elokuvissa ehkä päällimmäisenä jää mieleen taaskin se puhdas visuaalisuus ja omaa tietä kulkeva tyyli ja tapa, jolla Herzog lähettää kameran tarinankerronnan välistä hitaasti taivastelemaan ympäristöään, jot"

"Amazingly beautiful, well-acted jungle drama details entrepreneur Fitzcarraldo's attempts to mine rubber in order to raise money to accomplish his dream - to bring grand opera to a tiny town in Peru. Girlfriend Cardinale buys him a boat (to help with the mining), but unfortunately can't go on the journey, which ends up with Fitz and hundreds of Indians physically dragging the huge riverboat over a mountain. Klaus Kinski's performance is top of the line, very good direction, some very memorable s"

" Part of that unique genre, the "extreme film", along with works such as Apocalypse Now and Sorcerer. These films all show filmmakers willing to travel to dangerous lengths to paint unprecedented canvases and test their own abilities as storytellers and dream purveyors. Herzog's film might feel slightly disjointed at times. But the scope at which he is working and the heart that drives both him and Fitzcarraldo allow the film to rise memorably above any shortcomings. A classic of the genre, "
