It’s important to be reminded of both this scene and this movie every once in a while, and there’s no better time than on the verge of Spring. You…you don’t really want me to analyze this from a choreography perspective, do you? (Actually, in some ways it’s a better representation of medieval sword fighting than a lot of movies, which is kind of sad.)
Since there’s not a whole lot to talk about choreographically this week, if you’re looking for a good breakdown of the struggles and triumphs behind the scenes of Monty Python and The Holy Grail, there’s an in-depth write-up on it over at Fog’s Movie Reviews. He focuses on how the film’s complete lack of budget led to some of its best jokes.
And if you haven’t seen this movie? You really should.
