‘The Green Knight’ Review: A Masterfully Hypnotic Arthurian Retelling

On this edition of the The Global Film Show report, Editor-In-Chief Diego Andaluz gives his quick thoughts on The Green Knight. Joined by numerous global contributors, they’ll discuss their in-depth thoughts on the technical and thematic strengths and shortcomings of the film, among other notable highlights on an upcoming episode of the podcast.

An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain, King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

THE GREEN KNIGHT is one of the best films of the year. Hypnotic, methodically paced, and visually stunning, it plays like an elevated cross between LORD OF THE RINGS & BLADE RUNNER 2049 with a brilliant final montage that will make you question the trajectory of your entire life and establishes Lowery as a true visionary at the top of his craft.
