I really like movies like The King that capture the brutality and messiness of medieval combat. While the political intrigue is fine in the film, the pacing and cinematography are the real standouts. The nightime shots of the trebuchets launching flaming projectiles at the castle walls is a truly spectacular sight. I wasn’t expecting this movie to be so rewatchable, yet here I am writing about it after a third viewing.
