Northman is spectacular. It’s surprisingly Eggers ’most accessible film, but not the least bit immersed in its true feel. It’s a stubborn revenge story that holds hands around your throat & is visually stunning. “Holy shit!” That forced me to whisper. Many times. # Northman pic.twitter.com/5VDbxIqU0s

Watching Robert Ackers’ Viking’s revenge epic The Northman film, I often changed the applause and noise. The stunning dance system is still terrifying in ways I can not fully believe. Not with its setbacks, but it’s a kind of film, and its existence feels amazing today. & I take it.

Might be a little lazy shorthand, but # Northman Basically the answer to Robert Ackers’ 300. Violent, visceral, weird and sometimes dazzlingly beautiful, this is a fantastic action movie. Scorskard is a complete beast. pic.twitter.com/78V1AC5xTT

Northman simply did not have enough fuck-up. More impregnation is required.

The Northman Fucking Rocks, you guys. Naked fights. The intestines are excreted. Strange ass magic that looks like what I think drugs are? Skarsgård is going full animal. Glaze Bang is a hot bandit. Mud. Blood. Bijork is terrified. Firelight and some hacker fight scenes. RAD

Sorry to be implicit. I do not want to say much because I want to save for review. But yes, this is not only his best film, it is the best film of this year so far. Who cares about the Oscars when this good film is released earlier this year. # Northman
