The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

Robert Eggers combines defiantly straightforward storytelling with brutally unrestrained filmmaking, and the results are captivating and immersive as they come. Alexander Skarsgård is incredible, but I think the absolute scene stealer, and the one that made a lasting impression both with her performance and the overall weight her role has in the story, is Nicole Kidman. I found her totally fascinating. The Northman is well-acted all around, and it is a crowning achievement for filmmaking. Talk about pitch perfect work in every technical aspect. Eggers is 3 for 3.
