The Road to El Dorado(2000)

3.6/5 (with 1,410 votes)

After a failed swindle, two con-men end up with a map to El Dorado, the fabled "city of gold," and an unintended trip to the New World. Much to their surprise, the map does lead the pair to the mythical city, where the startled inhabitants promptly begin to worship them as gods. The only question is, do they take the worshipful natives for all they're worth, or is there a bit more to El Dorado than riches?

The Agony and the Ecstasy(1965)

2h 18min | Drama, History
3.5/5 (with 42 votes)

Charlton Heston stars as Renaissance artist Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni (6 March 1475 – 18 February 1564), who begrudgingly paints the Sistine Chapel for imperious Pope Julius II in this epic adaptation of Irvine Stone's novel directed by Carol Reed. While the novel covers Michelangelo's life from birth to death, the film focuses on the battle of wills between the perfectionist artist and the impatient Pope who commissions (and eventually commands) him to paint the famed chapel.

2.8/5 (with 2 votes)

One sixteenth-century clergyman's view breaks the Catholic Church apart.

Secrets of the Dead: Aztec Massacre(2008)

54min
3.0/5 (with 1 vote)

Historians have long believed that the Aztecs worshipped the Spanish conquistadors and barely resisted their crusade. But as this surprising documentary reveals, we may need to rethink our assumptions about the ancient civilization. Recent finds near Mexico City -- where more than 550 bodies, a portion of which seem European, have been unearthed -- are sparking theories that the Aztecs fought back and may have sacrificed the invaders to the gods.

Thomas Müntzer(1956)

2h 11min | Drama, History

In 1523, young Thomas Müntzer arrives with his wife Ottilie in the Thuringian village Allstedt to assume the rectorate. As a follower of Luther′s teachings, he finds in the Bible not only reasons for clerical, but also for secular reforms. But when Luther turns away from the rural population after a discord with Müntzer, it is Müntzer who becomes the peoples′ spokesman. He is forced to go to Southern Germany, where he convenes with revolting farmers. But his way leads him back to Thuringia. In 1525, he and Heinrich Pfeiffer form the centre of the Thuringian peasant uprising in Mühlhausen, but their success is diminished by the fact that peasants and craftsmen don′t seem to be able to work together. In Frankenhausen, Müntzer becomes the leader of a peasants′ army that is set to fighting the ruler′s army – and sustains a devastating loss. Müntzer is arrested and sentenced to death by decapitation for his insurgency.
