Review: <em>The Last Duel</em> is a Return to Historic Greatness for Sir Ridley Scott

How glorious is it that Sir Ridley Scott has returned to the historic epics he’s done so well before? The Last Duel is unlike Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven, though, because it’s a much more human story than either of those, as well as one that relates very much to our world today. It’s... »
