The Northman

The Northman ★★

evil in the hearts of men as rooted lineage of stolen class and land both, the embodiment of feudal society. from women two sons, who betrayed whom? amleth is his great grandfather and repeats its paganistic sacrifice as the spiritual conciliation of the self—branded over the heart but locationally, culturally, norse, syncretic future forgotten. in the pursuit of kindness and hatred he chooses both and gets neither; no crucifix hangs upside down but still i'm not sure Christ would approve. has less to say than the last of us part ii but it's different enough to be deemed interesting, at least. paid for by the icelandic tourist board; truly it is a dark and desolate place.
