The Northman

The Northman ★★★★★

It’s always going to be strange that I associate this film with seeing it the day my grandfather died. But it was a great distraction and it hit the spot.

A furious, rip roaring revenge film with gorgeous locations and landscapes. My favorite Eggers film of his three. It’s funny and it’s got hijinks. It’s scary and it’s got gore and pure animal violence. My only lingering plot issue was paid off in the most dramatic scene. The night scenes are gorgeous. The climax is tremendous. 

Also a video game movie through and through - there is a boss battle to get a special weapon.  Robert Eggers confirmed gamer
