The Northman

The Northman ★★★★★

What an absolutely captivating film from start to finish. Admittedly, I am not a fan of vikings. I find them far too barbaric and animalistic to be truly interesting, and although I try not to judge by today's standards, I find it hard not to be disgusted and repulsed by them. So I was sort of expecting to only half like this one. But no, Robert Eggers managed to serve an amazing story that still disgusted me, but managed to keep me staring at the screen begging for more until the final moments.
