Aguirre, Wrath of God - Limited Edition Steelbook
Aguirre, Wrath of God - Limited Edition Steelbook
  • Description

    Shot entirely on location in the wild Amazonian jungle near Machu Picchu, Aguirre, Wrath of God stars the legendarily volatile Klaus Kinski (Nosferatu the Vampyre) as Don Lope de Aguirre, a power-crazed sixteenth-century explorer who leads a troupe of conquistadors on a doomed expedition in search of El Dorado, the fabled 'City of Gold'.

    A visceral, ambitious exploration of megalomania and savage beauty, Aguirre remains one of Herzog's most brilliant achievements and one of German cinema's totemic masterpieces.

    This specially designed, limited edition Steelbook is released ahead of an extensive Werner Herzog box set from the BFI, which will include newly remastered HD presentations of 17 of his greatest feature films and shorts.

    Special Features:

    • Limited Edition Steelbook
    • Original Mono Audio (German and English)
    • Alternative 5.1 Surround Audio (German)
    • Original Theatrical Trailer
    • Stills Gallery
    • The Unprecedented Defence of the Fortress Deutschkreuz (1967, 16 mins): symbolic drama about four young men hiding from an imagined enemy
    • Last Words (1968, 13 mins): short film about the last man to leave a former leper colony
    • Precautions Against Fanatics (1969, 11 mins): short satire about horse-racing enthusiasts
    • Fata Morgana (1971, 77 mins): hallucinatory film exploring mirages and the Mayan creation myth
    • Feature-length audio commentary with Werner Herzog for both Aguirre, Wrath of God and Fata Morgana
    • Fully illustrated booklet with a new essay by Laurie Johnston, full film credits and on-set photographs

    Cast and Crew: Directed by Werner Herzog (Fitzcarraldo, Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams). Starring Klaus Kinski (Nosferatu, Fitzcarraldo).

Aguirre

Came in the scheduled time (as always so far with zavvi). Great price for one of the better steelbook releases out there (great video, audio and extras). Recommended.

Aguirre Wrath of God

Another marvellous Movie on Blu-Ray from Werner Herzog, if you are going to watch his work on a small screen, this is how to do it, very nice steel book packaging too.
