Operatic,mythic, retelling of Arthurian legend.
At different times in his illustrious career, John Boorman has announced that his intention to make film versions of both The Lord Of The Rings, and Wagners “Ring” cycle.Like Scorsese’s plans to do film biographies of Gershwin and Robert Johnson, or Coppola’s plans to make versions of Faust and Pinocchio, these grandiose projects have come to nothing. Fortunately, in Excalibur, we have something that comes close..VERY close. Boorman retells the Arthur legend in a way that evokes both the mythic power of Tolkien and the operatic splendor of Wagner.. ( Indeed, the sound track makes frequent use of Wagner.)Some have criticized Boorman for making the story of King Arthur too sexy and violent. Well, in their original , unexpurgated form, the Arthurian legends were just that. Boorman also looks at the Druidic and pagan roots of the arthur story, (” The Land is the King.”), and examines the inner conflict between Paganism and Christianity that gave the myth its original power. A great film, and one of my personal favorites. I have not seen Robert Bresson’s version of the Arthur myth, Lancelot Du Lac, but I suspect that it may be the only other one by a major film-maker that comes close to the eerie, mythic, glorious heart of Arthurian legend.

brash bold epic adventure
It’s the Dark Ages and the lands are divided in war. Merlin (Nicol Williamson) retrieves Excalibur from the Lady of the Lake for Lord Uther Pendragon. He secures a short alliance with Duke Gorlois but he lusts after the Duke’s wife Igrayne. Merlin disguises Uther as the Duke to have a night with Igrayne in exchange for the resulting child. Uther is ambushed and killed as he drives Excalibur into the stone. Years later, Sir Ector and his sons, Kay and Arthur (Nigel Terry) attend a tournament. When Kay’s sword is stolen, Arthur goes and pulls Excalibur from the stone. Ector reveals that Merlin gave Arthur to him as a baby. It splits the kingdom with Leondegrance (Patrick Stewart) willing to support Arthur. Duke Gorlois’ daughter Morgana (Helen Mirren) would grow up to scheme against Merlin’s plans.

It’s high fantasy epic adventure. The characters are bigger than life. It’s exuberance of unrestrained action. It’s wild romance and dastardly treachery. There is no subtlety in the acting. There is no subtlety anywhere in this movie. King Arthur has never been more flawed. His fall is inevitable and tragic.
