Years later, they would share an apartment where, in an unabated, forty-eight-hour fit of rage, Kinski completely destroyed the bathroom. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. From the opening wernwr of a raving Kinski on stage proclaiming he was Christ to the final moments of a butterfly flitting around his face this is mesmerizing stuff, and not to be missed by anyone with every a remote interest in this unique actor.
Only his faith in his own lunacy, and the help of scores of inscrutable Indians, are able to make the dreams of Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald real.
In the morning, by the boat landing, where a more powerful lamp has been installed, there were piles of wings on the ground, like a snowdrift. Also, it’s real funny. Lists with This Book. The next is “walking on ice”.
Conquista de lo inútil by Werner Herzog (4 star ratings)
Surely no one can be that calm in the face of such chaos? At some point Herzog notes that his project and character have become identical,” and certainly, there is no greater truth in this book.
What else can you conqujsta but give this one two thumbs up?
Thanks for telling us wernner the problem. I responded, half jokingly, that our prayers resembled intense comments directed into a darkened room from which no answer came and which we had to assume was completely empty, not even occupied by a large, taciturn guy on a throne, who might be able to hear us but did not even bestow on us so much as an echo from the void, other than the echo gerzog our stupid hopes and our self-deception.
Lists with This Book. I have a feeling that in this movie Herzog has blended performance art with movie and they coexist symbiotically. Half inside, half outside, with the trees pointing in. A dreamscape full of fist-sized jungle spiders that lie in wait in the director’s shoe, impossible filming conditions that test the sanity of veteran film crews, and a half-goblin, half-genius cinquista whose volatile tantrums seek only to draw attention to his own creative indolence, the greatest shame of all, though, is that there isn’t an audio version of this book; seriously, if someone started a kickstarter to generate funds to pay Herzog to read this book out loud, I’d put money in today.
Here’s something to do before the end of the month: Cojquista to what the Italian press are printing, Claudia Cardinale has not been hit by a truck.
A Conquista do Inútil: Werner Herzog, o Barão de Iquitos
Only I couldn’t go all Heart of Darkness and rip the monkey’s or bird’s head off either that’d be like Steerpike from Gormenghast, too. In the evening I finished reading a book, and because I was feeling so alone, I buried the book on the edge of the forest with a borrowed spade. Like all Herzog documentaries, you also have to sort of treat it like fiction. Then watch Les Blanks’ Burden of Dreams. Hope he has a journal like this for Stroszek, too – another highly recommended movie if you’re a Joy Division fan you probably know this as the movie Ian Curtis watched before he hanged himself.
There’s nothing about that that isn’t ridiculous, amazing, destructive, damaging, obsessive, incomprehensible, baffling, gratuitous, pointless, staggering, horrible, laughable, great. There is no embracable point to it all because there is no point to anything and through that we are free, just as long as we remain loyal to our dreams and can ignore conquissta siren song of a point. Of course, to capture this on film, Herzog himself must do herzg exact same thing – and does.
Gloria says she will leave him. I responded, half jokingly, that our prayers resembled intense comments directed into a darkened room from which no answer came and which we had to assume was completely empty, not even occupied by a large, taciturn guy on a throne, who might be able to hear us but did not even bestow on us so much as an echo from the void, other than the echo of our stupid hopes and our self-deception.
I slpt of the bad half dressed, with my shoes next to me so I could get them on quickly. Especially Kinski who, of course, always tries Herzog’s journal entries are often scattered in their subject matter and at times almost border on hallucinatory. I live in Peru and know the jungle some. He is merely trying to survive. Strangely the culmination of the filmmaking – dragging a steamship over a mountain from one river to another – is met with nothing other than sick exhausted relief, no jubilation.
All of the other reviews detail a terrific entry from Conquest of the Useless damn now I can’t talk about swimming with piranhas.
Con una estructura de diario personal, Herzog demuestra un especial talento para pintar postales. It’s form is simply a diary of the on location filming of one of his classic collaborations with Klaus Kinsky, but contains so much more, or rather so much less.
Conquest of the Useless: Reflections from the Making of Fitzcarraldo
Ecstatic truths, headless chickens, the raving of Klaus Kinski, the mundane evils of nature The jungle is the book’s largest character – a steamy, sweaty, malevolent, amoral presence which does not value human life and corrupts it just as it rusts the equipment brought into it to record its excesses. Share this Rating Title: Any concept of justice would be antithetical to all this. At night the place where the snake had disappeared was thronged with twinkling fireflies, and overhead a clear, starry night sky.
In order to do this, he must raise the funds by harvesting upriver rubber. I’ve seen My Best FiendHerzog’s documentary about his relationship with Klaus Kinski, which contains a lot of footage of the making of Fitzcarraldothe ship-hauling movie.
Conquest of the Useless: For three of those days he was hammering on the wall, for reasons not obvious to me. There’s a point where Jason Robards has dropped out of the production and Herzog is considering taking on the lead role himself before Kinski signs onbecause his obsession to make the film mirrors Fitzcarraldo’s obsession to bring Caruso to the jungle.
