Trailer.

Most beautiful film I've seen since Midsommar, and the best take on Hamlet I've seen since Strange Brew.  It was everything I was hoping for and more.

Apparently it's not doing great at the box office, which is a shame.  Good one to see on a big screen.

We're looking forward to seeing it this coming Saturday. Eggars is an interesting director.

Strange Brew as in the 80s comedy with Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas?

I figured The Northman was just a silly action movie when I saw the trailers and figured I'd eventually rent it someday if I was bored.

It did better over opening weekend than Eggar's last movie did over it's entire theatrical run. It's just that for whatever reason, someone who must hate money budgeted $65 million for this, and then Covid-related delays blew that up even more.

Looking forward to watching it at some point, but this film never had a chance of making its money back.

So we saw this.

It's interesting enough. I don't think it entirely works but I enjoyed aspects of it. My wife hated it though, and I don't think Eggars' confidence that this film will not be appropriated by far-right white supremacists of a certain kind is warranted--it's close enough to their imagination of things to be comforting to them.
