    The Green Knight

    ★★★½

    Very artful as in lots of colors and gorgeous sets. Very ponderous as in I'm still thinking about what it all means.

    It's a hard one because I can't really find any of the clues to the answer, and not that I'm mad to find an answer, wasn't really expecting one. It feels like a very old legend of old, something akin to Shakespeare, where there are very deep themes underneath it all. Everything inside the film serves that theme…

    Years of waiting have led to this. A film on this scale of spectacle and intrigue order an abundance of words yet I can only speak few thoughts.

    Undeniably expert direction.

    Undeniably great sound design.

    Undeniably audacious.

    Whatever you have heard about this film, I think every single film lover needs to watch it. Even if you know you might not like it, or have heard terrible things about it- it's an experience I will never forget. Aronofsky flexes is auteur muscles the entire time. I don't have strong feelings about it as nearly everyone else, but the experience of it- it's like nothing I've ever seen. Truly.


    That's all I will say.
