Sad Old Men Raking Over The Ashes...
6 May 2002 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

More and more DVDs are packaged with studio-sponsored promo materials shamelessly parading themselves as documentaries.

Usually this nausea-inducing drivel is full of luvvies telling you the great difficulties they face in getting-up in the morning to have make-up put on their face before doing what most sane people would regard as half a day's work.

Alternatively, these promos are full of saddoes sitting around singing the praises of people they self-evidently hate - such is Hollywood.

Most such stuff should never see the light of day let alone be re-packaged and sold to the unsuspecting. Holy Grail Locations fortunately doesn't come into this category.

Micahel Palin, Terry Jones and others make a credible documentary re-visiting the shooting locations for Holy Grail, whilst reminiscing about the film and its low budget (lots of interesting shots of Doune Castle intercut with shots from the movie, and showing how the sets were re-dressed several times over).

This documentary film will be of interest to those who liked Holy Grail as well as anyone planning on making a memorable movie on the cheap.

I was particularly impressed with the actor who played Hamish McInnes - this man clearly should go far. One criticism - the Julian Doyle part was mis-cast I felt this called for a much younger fellow.
