The Northman

The Northman ★★★★★

Same, feral Alexander Skarsgard, same.

Dripping in Robert Eggers’ distinct tone and style, it’s another excellent entry for him. No matter the scope or budget, he is clearly still firmly in control here. It’s his movie through and through.

The use of color is excellent, the performances bolster what would in worse hands be just a relatively straightforward plot, and the mythology hits so right. 

Exactly what I wanted from a Robert Eggers Viking epic. He delivered on his promises and I’m stoked.
