Burden of Dreams
Dir. Les Blank (1985).
Les Blanks documentary on the making of Werner Herzogs 1982 jungle epic Fitzcarraldo is a far stronger movie than Herzogs 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.
