German director Werner Herzog begins work on his 1982 epic "Fitzcarraldo" but soon runs into serious setbacks, from casting problems to his own stubborn refusal to use special effects. After having to reshoot much of the film because the lead actor was recast, his crew must then haul an old-fashioned steamboat over a mountain using manpower alone. With a resolve bordering on insanity, Herzog struggles to realize his vision, vowing to see the film completed -- even if it leads to his undoing.Burden of Dreams featuring Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski is streaming with subscription on The Criterion Channel, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and available for rent or purchase on Prime Video. It's a documentary movie with a very high Rotten Tomatoes (critics) score of 94% and a high IMDb audience rating of 7.9 (5,756 votes).
