Burden of Dreams

Dir. Les Blank (1985). Les Blank’s documentary on the making of Werner Herzog’s 1982 jungle epic Fitzcarraldo is a far stronger movie than Herzog’s in part because it has Herzog himself as the real life madman who wants to drag a steamboat over a mountain and bring opera to the Amazon.
