Cinematic: The Duellists

9 comments:

  1. That is one seriously underrated movie. One of my favourite duel scenes, together with the Neeson/Roth fight in Rob Roy (another underrated movie).

    1. I love the pace of the fight. No one banging swords together for the sake of frenetic action. It's all in the tension of the poised blade.

  2. I bloody love this film! Hard to find and few people seem to have seen it, but I think it is one of Scott's best!

  4. Brilliantly done. For some reason I just couldn't take my eyes off those braids. Great posting :)

    1. The braids really are something. But Harvey Keitel pulls it off. I think if I were his opponent, I'd be far more impressed by his stare than his weapon.
