The Green Knight is truly astounding. Defying the standards for Arthurian legend adaptations, it heavily favors atmosphere and mood over action and monologues. Substantial performances marry with director David Lowery's sumptuous style to create a film that is sensational, less about story than the experience. If you can get on the wavelength of such an artful quest, you'll be rewarded. Once you've found that footing, The Green Knight is a heart-rattling, loins-riling, and head-spinning trip that packs a profound punch.
