I'm all in for this one. Looks like they're going with the more traditional version of the Green Knight.

It's an art film first, fantasy movie second.

It's weird, surreal, and deliberately paced.

This is gonna struggle in making money and finding an audience, but I fucks with this hard.

Shoutout to everyone involved. I can't believe that this got made with a budget.

recently on The Big Picture podcast.


And then you look at his filmography and it's like...yep, each side of the coin keeps getting bigger, but it's bizarrely consistent, like a sine wave.


2013: Ain't Them Bodies Saints
2016: Pete's Dragon
2017: A Ghost Story
2018: The Old Man & the Gun
2021: The Green Knight
2022: Peter Pan & Wendy


Depending on how much you'd consider a movie based on an infamous New Yorker article starring Robert Redford that follows plenty of traditional biopic beats while also arriving to massive critical acclaim and incredibly modest box office numbers as "one for them" lol.

I found it really hard to explain to people afterward because there hasn't really been a big, ambiguous movie like this in a while. Is it about the power women can wield over men? Is it about the fallacy of the Great Journey story convention? Is it an ad for sexual supplements? A climate change allegory? All of the above, none of them?

I kept coming back around to saying "it's gorgeous, and long portions of it don't really seem to matter at all, and when it ends you kind of just shrug and go 'that was a movie'" and getting told I was doing a terrible job selling the thing but...I really wonder what could unseat this from my 2021 Rushmore by the time things are all said and done.

There were some parts that left me scratching my head (i.e. the random handy and money shot) but overall it was just a beautiful film. Lowery did NOT disappoint.

as someone else mentioned, this is definitely an art flick, which I'm cool with.

unfortunately I felt it didn't do a strong enough job in the opening scenes to really sell the characters and show why Gawain would want to take up the challenge he did. at the conclusion, I kinda felt, "what was the point of all this?"

my biggest takeaway is that Alicia Vikander (sp?) has a very subtle but intense sexiness about her that I *really* like. (and this is just off of seeing her in 'Beckett')

I appreciate whenever anyone can get a movie that weird into theaters. But too many moments and/or lines of dialogue felt either obviously circular or needlessly opaque. I realize it's a movie set in medieval times, but I kept waiting for people to have a human conversation. There were too few of them, imo.

Lowery's a beast, and I'll still gladly see what he does next-- A Ghost Story was real fucking weird, but it still successfully connected emotionally for me. This one didn't. A miss in my book, but far from a condemnation.
