In the film Knight's Tale the eponymous protagonist references the iconography of films such as John Boorman's Excalibur (1981), but is here rendered impotent both by his lack of horse and by his apparent lack of purpose. Without an obvious adversary or clear heroic purpose the knight becomes a tragic-comical figure, his vaudeville misfortunes alluding to the existential anxieties of the characters of Samuel Beckett.
