Matt Neglia’s review published on Letterboxd:
“My name is Alexander Johan Hjalmar Skarsgård, Supporting Actor Emmy Winner of Big Little Lies, third season guest star of the hit show Succession and loyal servant to the true director, Robert Eggers. Brother to the clown Pennywise, Son of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, and I will have my vengeance in this life or the next.”
THE NORTHMAN is exactly what you’d expect from a $90 million Viking revenge film by Robert Eggers. Brutal & dazzling with a meticulous attention to detail. The story is pretty straightforward & slow early on but I was still in awe of its spectacle. Alexander Skarsgård is an absolute beast, as he cuts down everything and everyone in his path towards a fiery conclusion of vengeance & fury.
