Video of the Day: Arthurian Apocalypse: Excalibur & Lancelot du LacVideo of the Day
In the latest episode of Guide to Kulchur, Ty E and Martin Lichtmesz join Fróði Midjord to compare two very different depictions of the Arthurian legend: Robert Bresson’s Lancelot du Lac (1974) and John Boorman’s Excalibur (1981). The Bresson film shows a nihilistic world where the knights of the round table have lost their purpose, whereas Boorman’s Excalibur portrays a turning point between primordial paganism, filled with magic, and the modern world of Christianity.
The episode is archived on BitChute (video) and Spreaker (audio only). Guide to Kulchur streams live on DLive every Tuesday at 2:00 PM Eastern Time / 20:00 CET.

King Arthur was Thor (Ar-Thur) – this is fully explained in these books which give amazing background on the true Aryan history and the historical relation to jews and semites – the author calls out the fake jew history in no uncertain terms – no way could they be published today – the battle between the forces of order and chaos goes back over 5000 years, and currently hangs in the balance yet again…
To which prior poster’s list may be added at least:
The only reservation I have about their author/prime source (L.A. Waddell) is his renaissance in the books of David Icke. Some of Icke’s books from the 1990s in particular exhibit fairly deep research skills whatever else may be said of them; maybe they were ghosted or researched for him. He was after all a “journalist” for the BBC during his long career in the public eye.
Waddell has not escaped academic examination. Christine Preston: “The Rise of Man in the Gardens of Sumeria: A Biography of L.A. Waddell” , Sussex Academic Press, 2009 and reportedly now in paperback. Not declamatory.
It’s amusing to note the contortions of the CI crowd in espousing this “alternative” view of “White” history while adhering to the inverted fables of the psychotics in their divinely inspired and infallible source-book.
One must also mention Eric Rohmer’s highly mannered and stylised retelling Perceval Le Gallois here: it is well worth viewing.
Having said that it does seem to me that Boorman’s Excalibur with its Wagnerian soundtrack is unlikely to be bettered. One can only to admire the choice of an ethereal Cherie Lunghi, fresh from Oxford, to portray Guinevere.
By contrast the recent BBC adaptation placed an (admittedly pretty) negress in that same role (despite, or in ignorance of, that name meaning The White Fey) — because of course ‘Britons’ of Colour cannot possibly be expected to tolerate Arthurian Legend on their television screens unless they see a cast that looks like them.
It may be some decades or centuries before we can hope for the next faithful and reverent retelling. Until then, let us enjoy Boorman, Bresson and Rohmer’s versions.
