This past Saturday, The Dispatch published a second article from me, a review of and essay on this year’s film The Northman: “The Northman Takes History, Spirituality, and Young Men Seriously”
History, spirituality and religion, and young men are three topics that most of today’s films do not engage seriously. The Northman does, and also turns to premodern times without recontextualizing those times.
You can read my The Northman article at The Dispatch, and thanks to them again for publishing my piece.
For further, less organized thoughts from me on The Northman, you can see my notes on Letterboxd.
