Letterboxd can be a lonely place sometimes. When I first watched Aguirre: The Wrath of God, I was underwhelmed beyond belief. Here, supposedly, was a masterful film about the descent into madness; and I was left cold. Amateurish camerawork, lazy editing, and one great performance by Klaus Kinski equals an experience that left me saying; "really?"
Now, let me preface this review by saying that Werner Herzog's filmography is hit/miss with me. Rescue Dawn and Grizzly Man blew me away on their respective viewings, and I already mentioned how I feel about Aguirre: The Wrath of God. So, I went into Nosteratu The Vampyre with level expectations.
Well, I shouldn't have worried, because this film is utterly incredible.
