The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

a two-hour black metal music video; exactly as awesome as that sounds. not really a fan of eggers' previous work, but this is a highly vigorous, beautiful and splendidly patient historical epic that appeals to me in two ways: an accurate and in-depth understanding of norse pagan beliefs/magick, and also a fuck-ton of bone-shattering violence. and here i was thinking that ridley scott was the only guy left who could still pull this off: the northman is the real-fucking-deal.
