    Legend

    ★★★½

    I was expecting more of a story with characters, and was delighted to not receive that. When it makes half hearted gestures toward believable characters, plot machinations, or humor it gets pretty tedious, but as long as it sticks to imagery and mood it mostly works for me. It's a High Romantic narrative poem/quest-romance. Equal parts Shelley (Alastor, The Sensitive Plant) and schlocky 80s fantasy.

     I've been meaning to watch this one since I was like six, so it was fun to finally do so.

    Janacek opera, spaghetti western, samurai film. The ornately detailed landscape photography flattens the space in a way reminiscent of medieval tapestry. Beautiful film.
