The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

85

a simultaneously primal and ethereal tale of fury and vengeance. a film that you don't see too much of nowadays; a well-budgeted epic that's gnarly and fronted by an actual filmmaker with a vision. and I am definitely in tune with Eggers' formal sensibilities here. particularly adore its soundscape and focus on landscapes and otherworldly visions. final 10 minutes are staggering and make up for the moments along the way where this does perhaps drag a little. also, Nicole Kidman quite possibly the MVP on the performance front which I was definitely not expecting!
