Superior telling of the Arthurian legend with a fine cast, beautiful cinematography and strong direction from Boorman. Perhaps a tad over romanticised, but fabulous performances from the likes of Williamson and Byrne hold this together creating something very special.

Ghost Ship (2002, dir. Steve Beck)
A salvage crew find gold aboard a fabled lost cruiser that turns out to be haunted. Its arresting beginning aside, this attempt to riff on – among others – The Shining at sea is hampered by a woeful script. A good cast and some decent production values wasted.
Hereditary (2018, dir. Ari Aster)
A family impacted by grief begins to experience mysterious occurrences. Splendid slow-burn horror about loss and faith. Lots to enjoy, with a creepy atmosphere well-sustained, and some fine variations on old genre ideas.
How about a different opinion? Here’s Xussia’s.
