The Northman

The Northman ★★★★½

about the masculine death drive and how the stories we have told our kin for centuries are all fabrications drenched in blood, yes, but also a director given a large amount of money to splash on hot people caked in mud LARPing; and when every party involved is going in this hard, thats enough for me. unlike The King’s boring attempts at gritty realism, this obfuscates it deeper by grounding it indeed in ultraviolence, but also a deep spirituality. further watches will unravel the contradictions in the characters beliefs and the mythology, but until then, know that there are lot of decapitations and i want more in all my period pieces. drop the eggers cut
