I read, and enjoyed, The Last Duel. At some date in the future, when it's free, I'll probably view and enjoy this movie.  I will never at any point enjoy Salon.com.  For consistent wretchedness it has few rivals.

Lot of fighting type wore that style with helms that included aventails (neck coverings going down the back/around the sides off the helm itself.)  Your hair was under the helm so no danger in anyone grabbing it, and it helped cushion a blow to the back of the head or neck.  And a LOT of blows were to the back of the head or the neck in a mass melee situation.  Fark fair, you took your cheap shots where you could find 'em - and even Bruce Lee can't face forward vs. 7 different randos all in arms reach flailing around.  Wasn't weird at all then, it was practical - so it grew into fashion in some cases.  Which was immediately less practical of course, but that's fashion exactly
