The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

Alexander Skarsgård skulks through this like a wounded animal, hunched and ready to strike at anyone in his way. His performance is significantly aided by Egger’s commitment to flickering natural light. In a film where spirits, valkyries, and zombies pop up at a moment’s notice, the shadows and dark spaces feel like they could hide anything.

Equal parts brutal and very fucking cool. Can’t wait for the 3 hour cut that has to exist somewhere.
