So the thing is, Aguirre, the Wrath of God is one of the best movies ever made, and this is partly due to Popol Vuh's mind-boggling soundtrack which haunts me to this day.

The film opens with a shot of a cliff in the Peruvian rainforest, and Popol Vuh's Aguirre I L'Acrima di Rei, which evokes a kind of awe I cannot describe.

Have a listen, see what you feel.
