Heart of Glass

Heart of Glass ★★★★

Pure madness. Whereas Aguirre, the Wrath of God has a solid narrative and follows a man's slow descent into insanity, the characters of Heart of Glass are insane right from the beginning and there isn't any real conflict or plot. It is one of the most bizarrely directed films I've ever seen. Most people would hate this film, but I was thoroughly entertained by its uncompromising absurdity. Also, it's one of Herzog's most gorgeously shot films, and Popol Vuh's score perfectly compliments the stunning imagery. 8/10
