“No filmmaker in the last 20 years has done folklore quite like Robert Eggers…. To say he’s stepped it up a notch would be an understatement — the man’s smashed it right out of the park.” —Hanna Flint, Empire Magazine “Living as we do in an unfortunate age of blockbuster homogeneity, it feels novel to watch a film that feels like a coherent, considered vision. THE NORTHMAN is a testament to the art of filmmaking, from the rough-hewn huts where our hero spends his time plotting to the visceral squelch of mud and blood. “It’s a film with fingerprints all over it; one that has been crafted rather than manufactured, and rewatches reveal a chance to revel in its sharpness….” —Hannah Strong, Little White Lies “A truly distinctive, unmissable epic…. It’s exactly what you want from a big-scale Robert Eggers Viking film. And it’s a cinematic rarity to be savored.” —Matt Maytum, Total Film “A staggering feat of visceral filmmaking, THE NORTHMAN, like Eggers’ previous films, warrants profound analysis while still delivering a high-octane action odyssey…. What Eggers has ambitiously crafted lands as an invigorating beacon for an industry in need of studio fare with substantial ideas and artistry.” —Carlos Aguilar, The Playlist
