King Connery: The Man Who Would Be King (1975)

Hoezo in Kino

“We’re going to teach you soldiering. The world’s noblest profession. When we’re done with you, you’ll be able to slaughter your enemies like civilized men.” Master director John Huston (The Maltese Falcon, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre) helming best friends Michael Caine and Sean Connery as the former British Imperial soldiers searching for glory in Rudyard Kipling’s rip-roaring adventure story is such a perfect culmination of talent it boggles the mind. This film is unabashedly thrilling, fun escapism and everything the artform was meant to do. Yes, we love this movie and so should you.

Sean Connery and Michael Caine play a pair of adventurers who try to set themselves up as kings in a remote region by convincing the locals that Connery is a god. John Huston dreamed of adapting this Rudyard Kipling tale for decades, and the years of thought and passion show on screen: Rousing and visually sumptuous, it’s one of the director’s best films and another of his sly meditations on greed and ambition.
