When one watches The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey one must wonder how Hollywood never truly figured out Vincent Ward. In only his second film, Ward shows a capacity for unique awe and wonder that recalls both Terry Gilliam and prime-era Peter Jackson. Ward’s film both bleak and hopeful almost defies logic and conventional storytelling for a magical realism that few have the power to pull off.
In the midst of the Dark Ages as the Plague has begun its chokehold…
The stupid fuckin Putin video footage took me out of this movie for a solid fifteen minutes. Why Bruckhemier?!? Why even do that??? Fucking hell. I went back and had to start over again.
Solid war film with some great actors. I was shocked by the scale. Think Charge of the Light Brigade by way of Blackhawk Down.
They take the Putin moment out of this film and it goes up a full star.
