The commentary Boorman provides on the DVD is one of the best. He credits lack of budget for the film’s high style — if you don’t have one, you have to have the other. Occasionally it starts to sound like “Camelot”, especially when Arthur comes to the convent to get Excalibur from Guinevere, but on the whole is a magical mystical mystery tour. And among the newly-minted movie actors don’t forget Liam Neeson, who jousts with the wounded Lance over the queen’s honor. It’s the only version that doesn’t make Lance and Guinevere look like a couple of brainless love-struck teens. In the book they were in their 40’s. Easily the best Camelot.
