One of the newest editions of the BFI series focuses on Werner Herzog's 1972 break out film in BFI: Aguirre Wrath Of God (2016) by Eric Ames. The book is arranged into eight chapters: 1. Visionary History, 2. The Descent, 3. Assembling the Troops, 4. Visions of the World, 5. The Act of Conquest, 6. Into the Quiet, 7. Hallucination, and 8. Aguirre Lives. Ames discusses the historical sources as they differ from Herzog's script as well as the problems and difficulties of the production, how the film reflects the problems of colonization as well as the initial reception and the reception of the film over time. There is a final note about the legendary showdown between difficult lead actor Klaus Kinski and the director-in which Herzog allegedly threatens to shoot Kinski with a rifle. Another well-researched and written history of a fascinating film.
