''Aguirre, the Wrath of God'' (''Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes'') is one of Creator/WernerHerzog’s first films. It deals with the voyage of Spanish conquerors to South America, in which a separate group is formed by Don Pedro de Urzúa, Don Lope de Aguirre (KlausKinski) and others. Of course, [[RiverOfInsanity being alone in the jungle starts driving the people mad]].

*AnyoneCanDie:[[spoiler: Really in this case, everyone will die. By the end of the movie the only characters that aren't dead are Aguirre, Inés, and Urzúa's right hand man. The Latter two's fate are more ambiguous and with both them alone in the jungle, it's debatable if they will survive. Likewise Aguirre is last seen on a the raft that has been attack by the natives multiple times and the real life Aguirre was ultimately dismember.]]

*EstablishingCharacterMoment:Don Fernando de Guzmán introduction scene has Gonzalo Pizarro bring up Guzmán nobility and accomplishments as we see Guzmán mindlessly munching down on food. This shows us that Guzmán is a bumbling buffoon that isn't fit to lead anything.

*FromBadToWorse: The whole journey in a nutshell. Things for Aguirre and the crew just gets worse and worse as they search for El Dorado.

* FatBastard: Don Fernando de Guzmán.

to:

* FatBastard: PlayedWith for Don Fernando de Guzmán.Guzmán. He's overweight and goes along with Aguirre as his puppet king; however of all the traitors, he's the least malicious and much less prone to [[KickTheDog kicking the dog]]. Even the scene showing his gluttony, when he gorges himself on their low supplies whilst his men starve, is played for laughs when they all just steal his food when he's not looking.

* LosingYourHead: Taking a rest after the storming of an Indian village, Aguirre notices two soldiers sitting somewhat apart discussing desertion. One of them says that he has counted the river bends they passed. He draws a map into the sand and is counting out the river bends to his companion as Peruchio approaches quietly from behind with a machete. When the man is at 'nine', Peruchio swipes his head off, and we get a shot of the head lying on the ground, counting 'ten'.

* GenreDeconstruction: ''Aguirre'' can be watched as a genre deconstruction of the 'jungle adventure' movie genre. A group of (mostly) white explorers ventures into an unknown land in pursuit of a fabled city of gold -- but there is no lost city, no treasures to be won, no battles to be fought, no secrets to be discovered. The good guys perish together with the bad guys, and nobody learns anything from it.

The good guys perish together with the bad guys, killed more or less evenly by either the implacable jungle, or by each other, and nobody learns anything from it.
