  1. bryanvmh's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    What a profoundly weird movie - Bresson definitely has a thing for everyone's tights.

  2. James Mackin's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    This is a really weird movie, and I have no clue why Bresson made it. But I'm kinda happy he did.

  3. Diderot's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Part of me wants to believe that the opening sequence was an influence on "Monty Python and the Holy Grail". Bresson did the blood-spurting head first.

  4. En Sangers Bøn's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    One beautiful depiction about chivalry, its adventurous romance, fairy legends and christian virtues. What makes the difference is also the reflective-poetical fiction touch which is typical from Bresson. Better than an other French film of the same name directed in 1970 by Santelli.

  5. postblueink's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    6.5/10 (05. 09. 2016). feeling of this film is much more bigger than my rate of him. i liked it.

  6. Brotherdeacon's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    My Ukrainian landlord looks just like Lancelot, the pinched lips, the 14th century armor that he wears over his pajamas, his flippancy in victory--like when he raises my rent every year the maximum allowed by Los Angeles law--hand delivering the notice at my door then returning to the bottom half of his horse for a gallop back to his tent up the road. Funny, his parents are dead ringers for Straub & Huillet.

  7. santiago alzate botero's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    i don't have anything nice to say about this movie i'm trying really hard but

  8. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Bresson creates his poetry by resisting poetry. He reveals in the process of concealing. He removes everything that can disturb the expression, then he removes the expression. A dialogue between the filmmaker, the actors and the audience fills the void that remains. This communication happens below human consciousness, and it is divine because it is made by humans in their most human state.

  9. Andrew Miller's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Not so far from Monty Python's Holy Grail-- empty striving, and then it ends.

  10. miles's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    visually its spectacular, the cuts, the focus, the colouring and the symmetry of all shots in this. The story however is nothing spectacular but is OK.

  11. Güven Şahinkanat's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    it was far from my expectations ... I understand that this movie completed with non proffesional actors because of this situation I m not going to make criticism about actors. I didn't like cinematography ... there are many reason to explain this problem. I think this film bresson's most weak film.

  12. Severus Snape's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    samo još jedan film koji mi neće pomoći da shvatim toliku oduševljenost bressonom. potraga se nastavlja.

  13. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    8 - Not my favorite Bresson (though not my least-favorite, either), but possibly his most richly textured work, definitely from an auditory perspective. There is something inherently beautiful about an austere and mechanized take on something as inherently grandiose as the Arthurian legend; a sort of inverted mythification, where our folk heroes are reduced to powerless men and not the other way around. A great film.

  14. Hammer.K's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    le son étouffé des sabots des chevaux sur l'herbe ou le sable, leur claquement sur la terre, le bruit du métal des armures qui s'entrechoquent. Austérité légendaire.

  15. mastorna's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    I wish I didn't have to choose a star rating whenever I wanted to comment on a film. Anyway, an extremely interesting work in terms of the possibilities of treating a completely distant past context. I didn't know you could get away with the stuff Bresson does here. The armor clamor is the equivalent of the car noise in other Bresson's late works. What's with the funky colors of the pants and saddles though?

  16. José Neves's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Probably only in some Straub/Huillet films and Oliveira's "Non" a period film was so semiotically staged, where the visual signs correspond to an exposure of a way and a time, and the sound, in its largest more-than-the-visible concrete dimensionality, the fill for an engaging and wide realistic approach, however ilogic such idea may seems. Or not, see the tournament sequence and the armors sound: (im)pure realism.

  17. Steve's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

  18. Lynch/Fellini's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Absolutely haunting and brilliant- One of Bresson's finest!

  19. waywardwaters's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Chiseling away romantic excess for an ascetic lore of anti-humanism, Bresson deconstructs and accentuates the mundane. Knights are pawns of an intangible force, decreeing them to be prisoners of self-honor as a pretext to sin in lust, murder and betrayal. Queen Guinevere is neither a trophy of ideal love nor an emblem of dark deceit but simply a woman. When the Holy Grail is materialised, the quest for God is lost.

  20. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    ★★★ the bitter spoils of war.

  21. bobspez's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    I'd like to know why Bresson refused the 1974 Cannes prize for this film. There's a six minute youtube video of his press conference at Cannes in '74, and he makes a lively argument or explanation to the press. Unfortunately I don't speak French. Would love to know what he said to them, and why he refused the prize.

  22. This is Jake Kath's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Some of the most bleak bloodletting! Savage, cold, bitter, bitter, bitter! Leave it to Bresson to remove the heroism in classical storytelling and shows us how idiotic we are in thinking we could be heroes!

  23. Border Radio's rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Yeeeeeeeeeeeeees first review! Get in Bresson you ba-you-tay!!!

  24. - -'s rating of the film Lancelot du Lac

    Did I just watch a Bresson action film? This was my final film of the year (most likely) and boy, did I fail in my mission to watch a ton of movies this year. I failed miserably. But I got to see two Bresson films I had never seen before and this is probably his strangest one. Happy New Year.
