Until the release of last year's widely and justifiably praised "Grizzly Man," veteran filmmaker and documentarian Werner Herzog was arguably as famous for the death-defying antics of his movie shoots as he was for the films he actually made. Among the most infamous of these fabled shoots was Herzog's first collaboration with actor/madman Klaus Kinski, 1972's Aguirre: The Wrath of God -- the first film in Filmspotting's six-part Herzog-Kinski Marathon. Alternately fascinating and frustrating, "Aguirre" -- shot on the cheap in the Peruvian jungle -- still has more than enough moments to make it worth recommending. Even more captivating, however, is Herzog's sometimes shocking, always amusing and insightful DVD commentary track.
