Fitzcarraldo - Filmbuch
By Werner Herzog.
An anguished Klaus Kinski stands at the base of sloping Amazonian hill. His linen suit is crushed and stained with brown patches, and his hair is wet and matted. Before him, a creaking steamship is slowly pulled into the trees.
Is this a performance? How much of his exasperation is to be believed? This book compiles stills, set photography and dialogue excerpts from Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo. Never has a surreal, exploitative quasi-adventure film metaphorising the amoral excess of the South American rubber trade looked so good.
