Arthur, on Arthur
I’ve been fascinated with King Arthur and his legend since I was a child (yes, even before I was a fan of The Avengers), and have sat through every King Arthur movie or TV film I’ve come across, and same with every book and comic book on the subject that might have crossed my path, from Steinbeck to Prince Valiant. The Pre-Raphaelites had their turn, too, including William Morris, one of my heroes. Heck, I even took a class at The University on the subject (at least marginally on the subject). Since there’s a new movie, starring Clive Owen, who I like, I thought I’d check it out.
Turns out King A has an Australian fan, who writes,
I was prepared to go and see “King Arthur” just as a piece of entertainment, but now with all the talk about “occupying country”, “insurgents” and liking the US, sorry, Rome, I will definitely have to check out this shameless piece of political propaganda.
Now I’ll really have to see the movie!
