The entire Medieval era seems like one big ill-conceived plan. Also, nightmarishly damp.
The trailer is pretty misleading, though. This movie is so quiet and uncomfortable with very hushed, minimal dialog and very little action. The soundtrack is beautiful, ominous and drone-y pretty much wall-to-wall. I’m pretty enamored; I don’t even know how they got some of these gorgeous shots - it’s like they’re shooting underwater half of the time because of the thickness of the fog. Desolate and depressing and surreal. So far, definitely recommended.
I am not impressed, however, with this orangeish CGI bloodspray. That’s the only thing that takes me out of the story.
