Fitzcarraldo - Filmbuch. 1982. An anguished Klaus Kinski stands at the base of sloping Amazonian hill. His linen suit is crushed and stained with brown patches, and his hair is wet and matted. Before him, a creaking steamship is slowly pulled into the trees. Is this a performance? How much of his exasperation is to be believed? This book compiles stills, set photography and dialogue excerpts from Werner Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo. Never has a surreal, exploitative quasi-adventure film metaphorising the amoral excess of the South American rubber trade looked so good.
