Arn: the Knight Templar leaving Netflix

If you see it in the recommended for you list on Netflix, chances are you will just keep scrolling past Arn: The Knight Templar. The imagery and description make it sound like another cheesy hack and slash flick. But, despite poor ratings on RT and other aggregators, it’s a surprisingly good movie. It tells the tale of a man sent to join the Knights Templar as a punishment for a forbidden love. The characters are compelling, the settings impressive, and the story frequently surprising. It is a tragedy, in the classical sense, and a very good period film. It gets pulled from Netflix on March 9. If you haven’t seen it, I recommend it highly.
