    Only vaguely watchable if taken as a fascist empire’s fever dream of itself, which in fact, it is.

    A Herzogian Viking epic with shades of Kenneth Anger? Yes, but it's terrible.

    Nowhere near as vile as its reputation (the worst acts were simulated). Shame this gets bandied about as an exploitation flick when in actuality, it’s a meditative act of empathy with the central character and his world, with the coarsest parts of ourselves.
