Aguirre, the Wrath of God
German speaking Spanish conquistadors float down a river in search of El Dorado and eventually the title character goes mad with power. The end. The main reason to watch this is its sweaty portrayal of what it actually might have been like in the olden days. The story isn’t all that engaging since Aguirre is played as a nut-job from the very beginning, but at least you get to see a horse on a raft.
