The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

Although this didn't quite go as far as I was hoping it might, there's much to wonder at on the screen. Most of which, with the exemption of the excellent Skarsgård, seems to find a way to dominant and drown out the cast. Kidman only registers due to her bizarre accent

The production values are majestically high though. The sets are simply perfect. And there are some camera movements (some long single takes, some not) that will make you want to stand up and applaud.

Eggers clearly knows what he wants and gets it on the screen. Is he an actors director? Probably not. Is he an artist? Hell yeah.
