Venice 2021: Ridley Scott’s ‘The Last Duel’ is a Stirring Medieval Epic

“I will not be silent!” When I sat down to watch Ridley Scott’s movie The Last Duel, I was not expecting a two and a half hour sprawling medieval epic with massive battles and intimate drama aplenty. For whatever careless reason, I was initially expecting a small scale drama about men fighting over a woman, culminating in an entertaining duel between two cocky bastards. While there certainly is an entertaining duel, this film is anything but small scale. The Last Duel is one of two new Ridley Scott-directed movies releasing in 2021, the other being House of Gucci, and it showed up at the 2021 Venice Film Festival as a world premiere at the very end of the fest as an out-of-competition screening. It’s not really a festival film, but it still entertained everyone anyway. Especially with a runtime of 152 minutes, massive medieval action set pieces galore, and a knights-in-full-armor duel unlike any shown on screen before. Will there be divisive reactions? Most likely’ Will there be plenty to debate and argue about? Definitely. But is it at least a good movie? Yes, it certainly is.

Duel Perspectives: How Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, and Nicole Holofcener teamed up for The Last Duel

Not for goodwill, but for a project that would reteam them as writers. Hollywood, however, had other plans for them. After winning the Best Original Screenplay Oscar for 1997’s Good Will Hunting, Damon, now 50, and Affleck, now 49, embarked on parallel careers as leading men. Their return to writing together would have to wait…and wait.

Now they’ve finally reunited’this time alongside acclaimed indie filmmaker and writer Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said, Can You Ever Forgive Me?), 61.
