Art Imitates Life / Life Imitates Art: They filmed the movie in the actual jungle, which was almost as foolish and dangerous a move as those of the characters in the movie. Of course the movie is based on real life, making this life imitating art imitating life.
Ass Pull: When Inez walks away into the jungle, she suddenly wears a beautiful white and yellow dress we have never seen before. It seems rather implausible that she had it in her luggage all the time; but it has no bearing on the plot anyway.
Crazy Awesome: Herzog, just for having the guts to do the movie from beginning to end.
