The Northman

The Northman ★★★

The blockbuster elements and residual A24 tics weren’t a letdown for me; Egger’s main strengths as a filmmaker lie in expressive imagery rather than substance (though, of course, he has more of the latter than his mainstream contemporaries—and many of his indie ones). It felt like a minor miracle to see this level of craft and audacity in a big-budget picture—in a theater—in 2022.
