THE DUELLISTS (1977) – REVIEW


1977 DIRECTOR: Ridley Scott 60/100 Recounting either the anecdotal or true story of two French army officer's 16 year series of duels during the Napoleonic Wars (Spanning 1800 - 1816), Ridley Scott's first real feature film left me wanting.

THE WICKER MAN (1973) – REVIEW
