The Green Knight

The Green Knight ★★★½

Still figuring this one out. Perhaps expectations were too high. I do know that I witnessed something special. There’s lots to contemplate regarding honor. Is it worth it? Does one need to be great or isn’t it enough to be good? What’s real or imagined or the fusion of the two? 

Technically there is much to admire. It’s an absolute feast for the eyes. I just wish I had felt more connected. I think another viewing will clear things up. One things for sure Dev Patel is a bonafide movie star but I’ve know that since Slumdog Millionaire. I’m glad he has chosen not to go the Marvel route. Here he gives it his all including spilling blood, sweat, tears, and even semen.
