      If it's a hairstyle that can be achieved with period tools and products, it was almost certainly done at least once.

    It was one of the greatest films I've ever seen. THE best Viking film. One guy walked out the cinema saying "I thought it was a bit boring". People are too used to endless, pointless CGI action with no substance and it's a real shame

      That's true for many, but not all. I wouldn't say it was boring, maybe the pacing was a little off for me. I still enjoyed the film though. Not everyone who doesn't believe it's a masterpiece is just another sheep. But yes most a lot of people who didn't enjoy the film were expecting another cookie cutter hero story.

      My theater was almost full and we literally all left in silence. I didn’t hear anyone talk the entire time, exiting the theatre. I was honestly just pondering what I just saw and how it ended.
      Probably one of the best experiences, if not THE BEST and most intense experience I’ve ever had in a theatre.

    Love this film. I'm shocked a big budget Blockbuster was allowed to be this weird in this day and age. I'm afraid it won't do well at the box office. I highly recommend seeing it in theatres so the booming, evocative sound design can really shake you and transport you. It's great

      @Christopher Binder Run of the mill Disney Marvel movie with some fractals and other neat visual patterns? Maybe it's a bit weird compared to the other Disney Marvel movies, but let's not pretend they don't have a specific formula for just about everything in their big releases. Even the smaller ones aren't allowed much of a leash.
      It's fine to like them, it's weird to pretend they're they aren't

    I would understand why people would find it boring, as it is not a movie with a modern blueprint. This is a viking saga. And in the viking sagas they had different desires and goals in life. Revenge back then was different than revenge now.
    Also I would love to see Robert make a movie set in either Ancient Greece
    The Aztec empire
    Ancient Polynesia
    Celtic Irland
    or an American Horror Noir set in the 1950s.
    And if he would adapt anything, I generally believe he would smash it out of the park with adapting The Epic of Gilgamesh or The Monk.

    • Dan Maertens

    • Ryan Rusin

    Alexander Skarsgård, you’re the man! Way too much light is put on the Norwegian and Danish vikings, so nice that you told about the eastern conquests and the Swedes/Rus people. I truly see that they have done so much research making this movie.

    • Mild Misanthrope
      Mild Misanthrope 25 일 전 +12

      I just finished listening to the Commentary track for the Witch, and over 1/3rd of the time Robert Eggers just talked about the historical background and research, and for half of the time he talks history he apologizes for having to make compromises on historical accuracy (we couldn’t get a period accurate dog breed but this Bernese Mountain Dog was well trained…etc…)
      Another 3rd of the time he talks about the hand crafted props, sets, and costumes created for the movie and credits the artisans and explains the creation process then complains when he has to use an ahistorical existing prop off the shelves.

    When the movie finished one guy said: *"This was the worst movie I've ever seen."* I couldn't disagree more, so I lol-ed hard. It's so disgusting that mindless superhero CGI movies without any substance or real cinematography get millions in sales, while quality films are struggling... Says a lot about today's generations... I had a similar encounter when Dune was in theatres, some Gen Z-ers were saying that they should have watched Venom instead, I was actually appalled at how they wanted a shallow superhero movie over a epic & amazing Denis Villeneuve film...

    This was a spectacular movie. I'm so happy it was historically accurate. A lot of the viking shows and movies take on a more colonial context, but Vikings were actually more tribal and mystical than many people in modern time believe. I had to go back and rewatch the pre-battle ceremony and the first pillage/fight scene because that long swift shot was so 🔥. Really impressed with this film, I bought it so will be watching multiple times

    Saw the film last night and was blown away by its epic scope and the historic accuracy of every detail. This movie is made for anyone interested in a deep dive into thousand year-old Viking culture. Every trailer highlights the violence of the time, but a wonderful surprise was the heartbreak and loneliness of Amleth's journey. The hopeful ending (due to a plot twist I won't spoil) in which Amleth is able to "change his fate" provides an emotional and satisfying end to this masterpiece.

    Great movie. Loved every second of it. Just as The Witch and The Lighthouse. I will watch every Robert Eggers movie no matter what. My favorite living filmmaker. I took my almost 12 year old daughter with me to see it. I figured she is getting to age where she can handle the adult themes. She was very quiet and watching intently. About an hour in she leaned over and whispered "this is AMAZING. Thank you for bringing me!"

    I’ve never seen a director so committed to historical accuracy, it’s refreshing.

    Robert Eggers proved he is one of the best living directors with this movie.

    I am so looking forward to seeing this at the cinema.The detail behind the story, costumes and visuals is astonishing and I really hope it does well just so I can see what eggers does next with an even bigger budget.

    I walked out of this movie astounded, haven't seen a movie so well made in a long time.

    Anyone who doesn’t appreciate the authenticity and the historical research put into this film has been overly influenced by the likes of “Marvel, Disney and The History Channel”
    Many of the collaborative sources are deeply committed to a better understanding of facts and Viking history.

    I’m so pumped for this, just the excitement they both give off talking about this one scene is amazing.

    Awesome film! And a pretty cool breakdown video too. Didn't realise how historically accurate they tried to be on The Northman! A welcome antidote to overcooked CGI movies.

    Awesome film. I loved everything about it but particularly the attention to detail and historical accuracy. Robert deserves some kudos for sure.

    I would watch hours of them explaining every scene of this masterpiece.

  • Elliot 'TobElliot' Nwaobi

    Really appreciate the dedication to trying to get the costumes and props historically accurate but also making not so accurate changes (like Amleth's adult hairstyle) to create a more aesthetically appealing legend.

    My hat is off to you Mr. Eggers. A true and genuine filmmaker. Unfortunately directors like that are few and far between in an abysmal wasteland of “yes men” with bankrupt ideas.

    This is the best film I've seen all year hands down. ✋ I saw it the same week as Dr. Strange. That was awesome too. But this was just visceral. I haven't seen something that affected me like this in a long time.
    It's going to take a lot to knock this film off my #1 of 2022.

    2:00 also makes sense to take this movie to Russia due to Alexander being Swedish and the Swedes did sail to Russia and even Byzantium. The Danes & Norwegian was the ones in the Bristih Isles.
