Episode 144: AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD (1972‪)‬ Trylove

    • TV & Film

You don’t have to squint to see what AGUIRRE, THE WRATH OF GOD is saying about European imperialists hunting for an imaginary city of riches in South America in 1560. It’s saying they’re evil! And stupid! And in that disarming straightforwardness, it’s making an interesting point about what people expect of fiction – of what they expect from movies – and how sometimes, there’s only one right way to tell a story about evil, deluded people: In the meanest, most pejorative way possible.
