The Northman

The Northman ★★

Visually arresting and exquisitely made, but essentially dunderheaded, much like Eggers’s overrated “The Lighthouse.” This one too is full of clichés that reduce all of the performers to little more than mouthpieces for heavy metal dialogue; the most ignominious is Anya Taylor-Joy’s final scene, which is complete nonsense. Really, is this two hour advertisement for a men’s rights weekend any different from a Zack Snyder joint?
