366 Days at the Drive-In: Day 283

The Date: July 9

The Movie: Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972)

What Is It?: Werner Herzog’s signature cult classic explores his favorite themes of futile conquests, nature’s disdain for humankind, and crazed obsession. The lead crazy is real-life crazy Klaus Kinski, who leads a doomed quest for the lost city of gold. After the grand finale, you’ll never hear the theme song from “The Monkees” the same way again.

Why Today?: Today is 7/9, and gold’s atomic number is 79.
