    The Northman

    By far Robert Eggers’ most absurd film. It doesn’t jump the shark, but it’s simply the pure Viking ego on display.

    Robert Eggers films always feel like of their period.
    The VVitch delve hardddd into the English folktale and drawing out as much of the myth in realism as possible. It ultimately resulted in what Eggers apparently feels is “boring”.

    But nonetheless fun, and witty, even if a clumsy wrap up.
