Still, Scott’s visual talent is undeniable. He has successfully taken on various historical periods, from ancient Rome (Gladiator) to the Crusades (Kingdom of Heaven, Robin Hood) to the Age of Discovery (1492) to the 19th century (The Duellists) and far beyond (Blade Runner, Alien, Prometheus). It is sometimes said that an artist only tells one story in his life; Scott has consistently returned to the theme of an outsider defying nearly everything and everyone around him to rescue something uniquely precious to himself. This usually involves foregoing belief in the highest good, the summum bonum—God—in favor of one’s own value system. This theme, combined with Scott’s eye for the spectacular, has been just the thing to legitimize the pervasive worldview presented by Hollywood, as well as meet the tastes of modern audiences. In this regard, he has earned the “legendary” adjective.
