Those crazy bastards actually gave Rob Eggers a big budget..
And the result is a violent, barbaric, and striking piece of cinema. Eggers does a good of transporting you to the time his period pieces are set in. And the brutal ‘The Northman’ is no exception. We are introduced into man’s violent and savage nature.
This sometimes trippy piece from Eggers is not for the faint of heart. But those willing to take the ride, will not regret it.
