Good stuff from Werner Herzog, who lets Dieter tell his own story: the German-born US Air Force pilot was downed in Laos and suffered some terrible times in the jungle, of exactly the kind that get the director of Aguirre all riled up. I wish there was some more about Dieter’s life after he was rescued, but instead, Herzog is about to release a fictionalized version, starring Christian Bale. The night after I watched this, my dreams were being narrated by Herzog–very frightening.
