The Northman

The Northman ★★★★★

Robert Eggers' latest film is a glorious sight to see. A $90 million viking revenge tale set in the beautiful country of Iceland. It's filled with several wide sweeping shots of small characters juxtaposed against huge mountains, and frankly creates some of the most cinematic shots I've seen in recent memory. The main cast ensemble are brilliant, but Skarsgård is in a whole world of his own, bringing a sense of humanity to this horrifying beserker. The combination of a very metal soundtrack and excellent violence make this at points seem like the film equivalent of Doom. What an absolute beast of a movie.
