The Green Knight

The Green Knight ★★★★½

I had two major thoughts as I watched this:

1. More than anything this seems like an essay meant to rebut anyone who claims that super hero blockbusters and new Star Wars movies are "our modern day myths." The overall moral of this story isn't more sophisticated (like every movie of the last 20+ years, it's largely about self actualization) but it chooses to tell it in a way that's more challenging, confident, and complex. I didn't understand all of it, which is definitely intentional for something this ambitious, but whether I think that's successful or not is going to require me to keep thinking about it. Credit where it's due, that is more than most modern movies ask of me.

2. I would like a small fox friend.
