The Northman

The Northman ★★★

Video here!

Really interesting to rewatch - as is typical of films like this, I saw Eggers’ vision much better. I’m getting similar feelings I had with The Green Knight. Both are subversions of centuries old tales that are trying to say something really complex and interesting, and both left me feeling like I’m putting together a puzzle I don’t have the reference image for. All the pieces are there, but I shouldn’t have to strain my little brain so hard to see it as a complete and comprehensible message. Sometimes it’s just a problem with the storytelling. Still so incredibly ambitious and full of awesomely gnarly shit though, warts and all.
