“The Last Duel” Review: Matt Damon and Adam Driver stand out in Ridley Scott’s Epic of Era Based on Facts

Read Time:2 Minute, 46 Second



In addition to Scott, his most relevant credentials for these purposes include “Gladiator” (successful) and “Paradise Kingdom” (quite unsuccessful). This movie was written and produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. . In an interesting division of labor, a long-time colleague worked with independent writer and director Nicole Holofcener to write the script, who described the part from a female perspective.
According to the structure, this will be one of three different chapters in a film that is more than 2.5 hours long, based on the last approved duel in France in 1386. This game allowed the Cavaliers Jean de Carrouge (Damon) and his perfect wife Margaret in Carrouges (Jodie Comer in “Kill Eve”) to accuse her husband’s former comrades of raping her, she The name Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver everywhere) seeks justice.

“I hope he will respond to what he has done,” Margaret said when asked if she would like to bring charges that could lead to bloodshed, adding-this sentence has been echoing for centuries In the age of #MeToo – – “I can’t be silent.”

However, speaking out does not necessarily mean that Le Gris will be held accountable. The result of the duel was designed to reflect God’s will and the justice of the accusation, so that Margaret’s rights depended on her taciturn husband, because she was regarded as his property.

Given the conflicting accounts, what happened? “The Last Duel” cuts it into parts representing the “truth” in the eyes of Carrouges, Le Gris, and Margaret, which explains the obvious “Rashomon” similarities, although the changes here are more subtle.

Partly for this reason, the study of small details gradually dragged down the momentum of the film. The most interesting memory comes from Margaret, and Comer-who made the transition to the main movie role with “Freeman” this summer-left the most impressive impression among other male-dominated casts.

Affleck also played the small role of the noble Count Pierre D’Alençon. He found a popular partner for his lecherous deeds in Le Gris, and he didn’t care much about Carouge, mainly because of his whole battle. The non-playing demeanor means that he doesn’t have much fun.

Shot in faded tones, the film carefully replicates that period, and the climax sequence of the internal organs is worth capturing on the big screen (and possibly again at home). As for emergencies, its description is necessary for the story, which does not reduce the anxiety of watching it.

The 83-year-old Scott’s powerful filmmaking skills to bring audiences into different worlds and eras have not diminished. Even so, the star power of this movie will be tested by an epic that is both a psychological role study and a bluff, which dabbles in feudal politics by talking about taxes and the blood of ungrateful lords and leading the mainstream.

Therefore, the film seems to be a step backwards in several ways, returning to the era when audiences dutifully poured into the theater to watch Robert Taylor or Alan Ladd wandering around in armor. In the age of streaming, incentivizing people to leave their castles to get that kind of fare looks like a “last duel” that will be difficult to win.

“The Last Duel” premiered in American theaters on October 15. It is rated R.
