Aguirre, Wrath of God (Werner Herzog, Germany, 1972)

Not just a great movie but an essential one.
— J Hoberman, Village Voice

The first outing for one of cinema’s most combustible pairings, Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski. Kinski plays an insane 16th-century Conquistador who leads an expedition down the Amazon in search of gold and riches.
