Robert Eggers once again proves that he is a modern master of filmmaking. All of his films are true cinematic experiences that need to be seen in a theater. This film does not hold back at all and has something to enjoy for everyone. For fans of action, period pieces, revenge, thrillers, Vikings, adventure, romance, surrealism… this film will not disappoint. The cinematography, production design, and score are definitely highlights as well. It somehow is even funny in parts. Also, the best volcano battle since Revenge of the Sith. So happy this film lived up to all the hype!
I imagine this was a prequel to School of Rock and Barry Judd later goes on to quit his job at the record store to pursue a music career as Dewey Finn before changing his name once again to substitute teacher Ned Schneebly. Coincidentally Liz also becomes the principal of Horace Green Prep School. It all adds up!
