3 stars The original soundtrack recorded for Werner Herzog's last movie featuring the outstanding Klaus Kinski in the role of the Brazilian bandit Cobra Verde. Quite adventurous, haunting and metaphysical, the film is formidably accompanied (once again) by the deeply spiritual, celestial music of Popol Vuh. The most memorable compositions are the self title track with its magnetic, spacey synth lines and the magnificent African / tribal chorus which is used to illustrate the magic funeral end of the film with the death of the hero. Despite that it is a very pleasant musical moment, according to me the musical level is not as accomplished (or permanent) as in the fantastic ethereal / creepy soundtrack of "Aguirre" and "Nosferatu".
