Next up in the Mesa Public Library’s Free Film Series is a story with fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love and miracles.
It’s not too scary, but there are some shrieking eels. An angry Spaniard repeatedly tells a man with a surplus finger to prepare to die. It’s almost a chant.
There’s an entire pit full of despair and a handful of quasi-sportsmanlike hand-to-hand combat.
There is a pack, or mischief, of really big rats to worry about, if they do actually exist, and an equally beastly Sicilian with a dizzying intellect.
But there are also sweet moments where a farm boy hands a girl a pitcher, or when a mostly dead pirate manages a little head-jiggle. And of course, there is the one kiss that is so passionate, so pure it leaves the erstwhile top five behind.
Have you guessed the title yet?
I love this movie. If I could build a summer home in the Fire Swamp, I would. I remember once, as an undergrad, when a teacher asked everyone to share the names of their favorite movies.
I said this one and my professor said, “I guess we all know what Kelly’s like.” I assume she meant hilarious, action-packed and timelessly charming.
