hahahhaha yes you ignorant peons, I was invited to a screening of this movie last week and now that the embargo is over I can report it fucking slayed. Finally a version of Hamlet that doesn't suck!

I knew I was in good hands early in this film in a scene that depicted our hero and his friends going wolf-man berserker mode and massacring an entire settlement of people, selling the women into slavery and chucking screaming children into a barn they then locked and set on fire. I was Nicholson-nodding the entire time. Eggers excels at portraying the past as sci-fi that doesn't just look different than the present but one in which the characters' own thoughts, beliefs and experience of reality is on different planet than our own.
