The Northman

The Northman ★★★

Yes, this was very epic and powerful. Yes, the landscapes and brutal violence are beautiful and hellish. However, I just don't feel completely sold on this. I feel like despite all the bizarre viking stuff and epic narrative it just felt lacking of something.

Maybe it just doesn't feel as original, inspired, and risky as The VVitch or The Lighthouse. It's just not something I'd think to much about after the credits. I guess it just didn't really impact me, it's not a bad film by any means, but It just kinda has me left wanting more.

I think I'm gonna have to see this again tho for sure. Maybe my thoughts will change with a rewatch but for now I'm going with my gut.
