The Northman

The Northman ★★★★½
This film wears its inspirations on its sleeve and sports them well. Norse mythology is seriously cool to me so something like this that expands upon it and adds layers to the occult and religious nature is freaking awesome! I thought the dream/trip sequences and the landscape was amazing! Characters were beyond cool and the revenge epoch was spun in such a compelling manner that I just can’t help but hold this in spectacularly high regard. Good themes but this is proof that Eggers is taking a step towards being the director who can execute on the highest of levels. It’s takes special talent to elevate already truly captivating content and that was achieved in this movie!!! Very welcome for re-watch that could push this to 5/5
