Ridley Scott Storbritannien, 1977

Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film The Duellists

I have an inordinate and probably over inflated love of this film having seen it innumerable times since being a teenager. It now feels like an old friend to be watched as a treat on high days and holidays. Always highly engaging even when you can mouth the script in advance; and Diana Quick is so beautiful it really shouldn't be allowed. That struck me as a teenage boy too.
