Basically "Aguirre: Wrath of God" is a documentary missing a few interviews here and there, but the great thing is we don't need interviews to see how the men are feeling, it's all described perfectly with Herzog's minimal script and direction, and of course the acting, which is great not because the actors all have great performances, it's that they are so realistic.

Aguirre's influence over the small expedition only became possible bc he was able to convince the muscle of the group to back him through promises of riches, fame and power, through finding the City of Gold.

Klaus Kinski (Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht) plays Don Lope de Aguirre, a conquistador who had helped take down the Incans and is now looking for the mythical city of El Dorado, the City of Gold.
