Summertime…and when I’m not digging, hiking, painting or spiking, I like to relax and watch movies. This morning I put on my coffee after my run and sat down to watch The Fisher King, a movie I saw several years ago and never forgot.
To begin with, Robin Williams is just an exceptional actor in his role as Parry….add to that the fact that this movie captures a sense of magic and ritual and this is one to add to my collection of favourites!
I like the moment in the film when Robin, lying on his back naked in the park, relates the story of the Fisher King. I’ve included a link to a wonderful site that gives some of the legend and mythology around the notion of the grail and some Arthurian ‘stuff’.
