Still image from Fitzcarraldo
With a production filled with legend, this epic is full of vast shots of wide-open spaces, people trying to succeed at the near impossible and the proclivity of some men to set out to conquer the unconquerable. Klaus Kinski is Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald, a man with big aspirations and little achievement to validate his grandiosity. Like Aguirre before him, Fitzgerald becomes fixated on the realization of an improbable goal: the erection of a posh opera house in a small Peruvian city. With hopeful financing to come from the lucrative demand for rubber, Fitzgerald attempts to drag a very large steamer up the Amazon for the exportation of rubber trees. The local natives play both a vital and detrimental role in Fitzgerald’s dreams of ascending to greatness. (2K DCP. 158 min. Rated PG.)
