The Northman

The Northman ★★★½

Apart from Eggers’ off-putting obsession with flatulence (that always seems to add the kind of lowbrow humour that could ruin an entire film for me), this was pretty damn good. Technically, the movie is a marvel in itself and showcases the director’s talent for finding originality in a story that’s been told a thousand times before, and it’s certainly refreshing to see something studio-produced that’s artistically-driven, even when it’s narrative doesn’t take as many risks as it should.
