5 stars Perfectly dreamlike soundtrack to one of the dreamiest films ever made: German director Werner Herzog's eerily beautiful yet deeply pessimistic masterpiece.

If you've never seen AGUIRRE, rent the DVD or better still, get the local arthouse cinema to organise a late-night showing! You'll then be able to enjoy the magnificent music AND the images it was composed for. Don't expect a fast-moving story.

Without any doubt AGUIRRE is a masterpiece of 'progressive music', but it bears no relationship to the circus stuff Messrs Wakeman and Emerson were performing on ice-rinks and in gigantic stadiums at roughly the time this was composed. This is music on an entirely different level. I cannot recommend it warmly enough.
