Few directors have the visual imagination of John Boorman.

One of my favorite films of its year, and far and away my favorite of this type of film. (And, yes, I include Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films in that assessment.)

...romantic and brutal, lyrically beautiful yet grittily realistic.

So far the most honest and most powerful on-screen depiction of the ancient and universal legend.

A darkly grand and gothic look at the Arthurian legends. One of Boorman's (several) masterworks.
January 17, 2002
English film director John Boorman's stunning and spellbinding dramatization of the Arthurian myth.
