Pierluigi Puccini's rating of the film The Man Who Would Be King

Another everlasting glimpse of John Huston's adventurous and relentless soul. The epic tale of two petty rascals who embarked on a quest for wealth, but found instead the essence of life itself, and most importantly, remained together against all odds. An incisive ethnographic and existential study, and a chant to camaraderie and glory narrated with vigor and beauty.
