The Last Duel

The Last Duel ★★★★

I love the way this story is told. The multiple perspective timelines can be hit or miss but I think it was the best way to go about a story of ‘he said she said’ while keeping the truth ambiguous until the final act. I definitely had some problems, most prominently holding way, way too long on the rape scene, and the fact that it gets a bit repetitive and drawn out at times.

I think this is a great showcase of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s screenwriting talent in addition to their clearly present acting abilities. Ben Affleck absolutely stole every single scene he was in, adding this new age charisma that clashes with the medieval period in a perfect way. It’s not easy for me to get into movies from this time period, but I really liked this one.
