Live Poll: Best Film About the Arthurian Legend

Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) is not the first movie about the legendary British leader who, according to medieval histories and romances, led the defense of Britain against Saxon invaders in the late 5th and early 6th centuries AD.

King Arthur, Camelot, the wizard Merlin, Lancelot, Arthur's wife Guinevere, the sword Excalibur, the Knights of the Round Table, these are some of the ingredients of the popular legend.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017) is moving up as more and more people have seen the movie. It's now already in second position.

I voted Excalibur 1981 because it is the most accurate depiction of the deeply spiritual teachings and archetypes contained in the original story.  This is not just a story, it is a profound spiritual teaching much like other famous stories. A way of giving these archetypes and esoteric principals to humanity, which are real and exist inside us all, through the ray of art, in the form of a story.  Its a hard movie to watch in the beginning especially due to the movie reflecting the chaotic state of Camelot (which represents our inner 'country') in the beginning of the spiritual work.

Very true. I think The Mists of Avalon is another movie about the Arthurian Legend that contains some very powerful spiritual teachings.
