25 From 82: My Favorite Films Of 1982 (25 movies items)

"Taking place in the early 20th century, Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald is a small time businessman with a dream; to build an opera house in Iquitos, a town situated in the middle of a large Peruvian rainforest. So he instigates a plan in which he will haul an enormous steam ship over a mountain into an unclaimed yet hard to get to crop of land that's teeming with gold producing rubber trees. And ya gotta admit, even in the wild wilderness of the Amazon, that's not something you see every day. Heck, it"

And what's more is that I could see the truths in both sides of these arguments; the plot meanders a lot and lacks point, but it's a technical masterpiece, like many of Herzog's films.

Throughout the film, there would be scenes that would almost hypnotize me with their stunning visuals and Herzog's remarkable direction, but then there would be scenes that dragged pointlessly and made the film even more pointless than it already was; there really was no main po” read more

Total Film's 80 Greatest 1980s' Movie Moments (80 movies items)

"The Moment: Klaus Kinski brings opera to the Amazon...by carting a boat up the side of a forest. Only In The '80s: ...would the filmmakers actually do this for real. If It Was Made Today: It’d never happen. Not even Werner Herzog is that crazy these days."
