Blu-Ray Pick of the Week: "Aguirre, the Wrath of God" (1972)

Werner Herzog's trippy mindbender of a movie was released on blu-ray recently, and it's definitely worth seeing if you've never taken the ride. Herzog has always been known for his punishing shoots, but here he was working with an actor in Klaus Kinski, who many say was even crazier. Supposedly his manic behavior terrorized the cast and crew on set, but it led to a mesmerizing performance as the man who leads a group trek through the Andes in the 1500's on a pointless search for El Dorado. Over the course of the journey he's slowly driven mad and drives the others to ruin as well. This movie clearly had a major influence on Apocalypse Now and it's a cinematic experience you'll never forget, trust me.
