What's your native language, man? Because if you actually have a PhD,I don't think it's English. Your ideas are....interesting, but I think they're totally off base. The Mists of Avalon is not a bed time story, it's a spiritual novel written for older readers. It's not especially historically accurate, but it's a beautiful retelling and, for me, it brought a whole new religous outlook.I don't think the religous aspects should have been omitted, I think that would completely destroy the point of the story, and as someone who has read the book, I think that the movie distorted and left out a lot of the important details which made the novel so interesting. By the way, I do think the soundtrack is awesome. The movie introduced me to Loreena McKinnet.
