"This is pornography in the etymological sense of "depicting women as harlots". The women in this film have little ambition but to be wanted by men and f***ed by men. They craft themselves, via their clothing and appearance and mannerisms, in such a way as to attract the attentions of men. When a man treats her badly, she responds with love and affection. When she says no, she means yes, or likely even YES. She is not a real woman, but a patriarchal fantasy of what a woman should be."

"An interesting subject, and a great film. That Juliane survived the plane crash was a miracle enough. That she survived 10 days of travel in a Peruvian jungle with a broken collar bone, swollen eyes, and a single shoe having essentially nothing to eat is amazing. Even more so that having done this she later had the strength to go on to a PhD in biology, and to survive going back to the crash site and digging around. It's also fascinating that Werner Herzog himself nearly boarded the same plane."
