Fitzcarraldo: a portrait of mad ambition

Recently I saw for the first time Werner Herzog’s 1982 classic “Fitzcarraldo” so I decided to do a review about it. It tells the story of Brian Sweeny Fitzgerald (Klaus Kinski), known as Fitzcarraldo in Peru, during the rubber boom of the beginning of the 20th century, as he embarks on a crazy adventure to get financial funds for his dream of opening an opera house in the town of Iquitos. 486 more words

October Horror: Day 20, Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht

Day 20

Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht

or 

Nosferatu the Vampire

Werner Herzog’s Nosferatu is probably one of the most beautiful films ever made, and certainly it is the most lovely vampire movie. 269 more words
