The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

Perhaps doesn’t get quite as far into that truly esoteric & dreamy realm but Eggars as per usual excels particularly in presenting historical myth as nothing more than a bloody fallacy of masculine dominance more than anything, with men rewriting and dictating history through their own self-serving bloodlust. But it also rules that this is basically just Viking Hamlet complete with obscenely buff dudes partying, killing & screaming ‘AAAAARRREEGGGH’, kinda rules an just endlessly satisfying to have a film of this level be so singular and willing to be kinda alienating to general audiences. Björk is a true movie star!
