There's a press embargo for THE NORTHMAN. Fortunately, we're not press. The film is incredible. Fully realized and epic, it reaffirms we're in the hands of a master filmmaker. Eggers is the one. pic.twitter.com/2oDggwqh6H

I've been a huge fan of Robert Eggers for years, but THE NORTHMAN is truly his masterpiece. Brutal, fearless, & audacious, it feels like the kind of cinematic epic we don't see very often anymore. It's a ferocious & stunning work of art & Alexander Skarsgård rules. #TheNorthman pic.twitter.com/Cs8Zgbktuc

It’s a crying shame that THE NORTHMAN has been so criminally mishandled because it’s precisely what blockbuster cinema should aspire to, and still has the potential to be. Formally audacious but welcoming; easy to follow but not, simply, a guided tour. Five big ‘ol stars. Björk! pic.twitter.com/vXpDLOrU7b

Wow. #TheNorthman was incredible. Robert Eggers at the top of his game. Stunning, shocking, jawdropping and unforgettable. Talks of studio interference were highly exaggerated; this is purely an Eggers movie through and through. It is truly a miracle that this movie exists.

The Northman is spectacular. It’s surprisingly Eggers’ most accessible film, but no less immersive in its authentic feel. It’s a gripping revenge story that keeps its hand around your throat & visually stunning. Compelled me to whisper "holy shit!" several times. #TheNorthman pic.twitter.com/5VDbxIqU0s

Robert Eggers’ #TheNorthman is hauntingly visceral & super transfixing. You definitely won’t be able to take your eyes off this blood-soaked revenge tale. Alexander Skarsgård is a BEAST & ferocious throughout. Nicole Kidman has a couple scenes that floored me. Daring & devilish pic.twitter.com/9DMX3Mm4sq— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) April 5, 2022
