The Northman

The Northman ★★★★★

the VVitch is one of my favourite movies of all time, and I genuinely think this is better. I'll be seeing it again soon so we'll see how I feel after a 2nd viewing

as a total mythology nerd, seeing imagery from Norse mythology like Yggdrasil, Freya, The Gates of Hel and Valhalla being depicted so faithfully in a movie like this is so unbelievably cool and I was geeking out everytime they'd show some of the old Norse myths (this doesn't spoil anything plot related, so don't worry about that)

the cinematography, the sound design, the acting, it all just works and this movie genuinely feels really epic in scale. the fight choreography is impeccable. it's so brutal and I adored every second of this. Eggers is quickly becoming my favourite director working today and has hit it out of the park with each of his big 3 features

I feel like every couple days I see a new movie and think "this is one of the best things I've ever seen," especially bc I've said that with 3 different 2022 releases (this, EEAAO, and The Batman).

2022 has been blessed and there's still Nope coming out this summer. anyways I love this movie a lot so go check it out if you can
