#WatchlistScreenCaps: The Holy Grail and King Arthur

Grail & Arthur Themes

The following is a chronological collection of screen-caps from every single Grail- or Arthur-themed film I watched between February 12, 2013 and February 12, 2014. For a chronological lineup including other films as well, visit my complete #WatchlistScreenCaps chronology. Links lead to previous pieces on a given film.

The Sword in the Stone (1963), prod. Walt Disney
Unusual Disney feature, one of its most laid-back and episodic (no commercials, though)

 Lancelot du Lac (1974), dir. Robert Bresson
Into the Bressonian wood: a ghoulish, spiritually beleaguered Camelot

Perceval le Gallois (1978), dir. Eric Rohmer
3 drops of blood in the snow

Excalibur (1981), dir. John Boorman
A land of silver castles and golden dragons

Parsifal (1982), dir. Hans-JΓΌrgen Syberberg
So many fantastic images to choose from in dazzlingly weird Grail opera film

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), dir. Steven Spielberg
"I suddenly remembered my Charlemagne: 'Let my armies be the rocks, and the trees, and the birds in the sky.'"

The Fisher King (1991), dir. Terry Gilliam

Wagner enters the Grail Castle

King Arthur - The Search for the Holy Grail (2000), dir. Jens-Peter Behrend
The hidden chamber which Parsifal sought in his quest?

The Secret of the Holy Grail (2005), dir. Susanne Aernecke
Low-key, low-fi Grail doc with terrible Netflix reviews, but I quite enjoyed it

Returning Excalibur to its watery home

Holy Grail in America (2009), dir. Andy Awes
Quite a lot of leaps of faith required
