The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

FUN FACT: I love learning new things from movies. Today I learnt the origins of bondage. Nice.

On a more serious note, although I loved the soundtrack interpretation & sound engineering very much done by the 2 composers I've never heard of: Sebastian Gainsborough & Robin Carolan, I would've prefered a different approach done by the amazing duo known for scoring lots of astonishing TV series: Danny Bensi & Saunder Jurriaans in a much darker & sombrer way to confer it a truly terrifying feel. The way I resonated with the music & the fight scenes with the "dead ones" felt much like the game Wolfenstein: Return to Castle ( a childhood game I really do recommend from the bottom of my heart if you like first person shooters with a good story behind , especially a WW2 alternate story ).

As for the movie itself, despite not being a fan of "medieval" movies, nor a Robert Eggers fanboy, it really kept me engaged & delected me with a really magnificent cinema experience.

This is gonna be a film that's gonna stand the test of time many years from now on & I'm looking forward to more of Robert Eggers's work in the future.
