The Duellists (Ridley Scott 1977) Harvey Keitel, Keith Caradine. As a bonafide Napoleonic buff & Ridley fan I can't help but love this film. My first cinema experience of Ridley's work too only surpassed by Alien & Bladerunner.

Ridley Scott's first movie was The Duellists and it is still one of his best.. Keith Carradine and Harvey Keitel based on a story by Joseph Conrad and produced by David Puttnam, with Albert Finney, Edward Fox and Tom Conti in supporting roles. How do you score that for your first time out?
