Directed by George A. Romero, the revered director of the groundbreaking Living Dead movies, Knightriders is an unexpectedly good-natured, and even poignant, movie. A mash-up of Arthurian legend and biker culture, it tells the story of a traveling company of motorcycle jousters — yes, you read that correctly — led by the good and noble-hearted Billy (a youthful Ed Harris). Facing the same problems that tore Camelot apart, Billy is forced to realize some terrible truths. The movie’s ending can move even the gnarliest biker to tears.
