Whats so good about 'Aguirre, Wrath of God' besides the technical difficulties when the film has made? I saw it once and it was very difficult to keep myself interested during the course of the movie.

Well I don’t know that technical difficulties have any bearing on whether it’s good or not. I guess you just didn’t like it and I did. What do I like about it? Well Kinski’s performance, the cinematography, the whole absurdity and insanity of the quest, of these people stuck on a raft declaring themselves rulers of the land they are in fact lost in. The growing feeling of paranoia, insanity and detachment from reality Herzog summons up.

Chushingura (1997)

Directed by Werner Herzog, Sets and Costume design by Eiko Ishioka

Above: Kimonos designed by Eiko for the prostitute characters. As the costume and set designer, Eiko brought her minimalist aesthetic to the lush opera. Her visual tableau was inspired by Japanese ukiyo-e art, the most illustrative cultural source for the Edo era; at the same time abstract touches rendered her design utterly modern. Visually and essentially the opera Chushingura brought a new dimension to this three-hundred-year-old story. - Eiko on Stage
