Excalibur (1981)

The best King Arthur rendering ever on film, one of the very best fantasy movies of all time - Excalibur (1981) is a truly poetic retelling! Boorman's vision is enirely different from that of the later King Arthur film (2004) - it's mythical, dramatic, theatrical, fantastical and utterly engaging (at least for this viewer). Gabriel Byrne as Uther, Nigel Terry as Arthur, Nicole Williamson as Merlin are all perfect for their parts. If you've never seen Excalibur, and you have any interest in good theater, then get a copy and see it. - J Kn
