The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

Another Robert Eggers banger.

Very nice to see him operate on a blockbuster scale. Didn’t feel like he had to tone down his style at all, and rather that this was the exact level of weird it needed to be.

But honestly, seeing this to cap off a week was perfect. I honestly didn’t understand much of what was being said but because of the terrific filmmaking, I understood everything that was going on. I was honestly just kicking back enjoying ubermasculine muscly manly men being manly roaring and screaming and slashing people up and vowing revenge and spontaneously diving off boats to swim to shore to get revenge coz they’re just that manly. Fun stuff.

Oh and Nicole Kidman was deliciously WICKED.
