Definately my favourite Eggers film to date. Violent stylish and gritty. Great cast (which the director i must admit always does have). Beautifully shot, dark but not so dark you cant see. Its a brutal film. One i will surly revisit more than once in the future.

Brutal and gritty historical epic that audiences almost never get anymore. Alexander Skarsgard is in strong form as an exiled Viking prince that plots revenge against his father's killer and hacks his way through anyone trying to stop him. The uncompromising and harsh world that once existed is recreated thanks to Robert Eggers' direction.

As this happens shortly after a drug-fueled coming-of-age ceremony presided over by Heimir The Fool (Willem Dafoe) - it also inspires a life-long …
