If you’ve read anything about “The Green Knight,” it is likely that people said many nice things about it. Early reviews say that it is a work of art, the best Arthurian adaptation since “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”. Dev Patel was born to play this role. Rotten Tomatoes gives an aggregated score of 89% at this time. As ready as I was to love the film, I have to admit that I left feeling like I saw a different movie. Many people agree that the Rotten Tomatoes audience score is 64%.
Directed by David Lowery, the movie begins with Gawain wishing for more life experiences. He talks to King Arthur at a Christmas feast. Then the knight with a suit like Groot from “Guardians of the Galaxy” walks up and offers a game. One of Arthur’s knights struck the Green Knight with a sword. One year later, the Green knight goes to where Arthur is and does the same thing.
The Green Knight offers Gawain a chance to earn fame. Gawain takes the ax and chops off his head. Except the Green Knight picks up his head and rides back to where he lives, which is close by. He knows that Gawain is coming and he will be waiting.
What are fans expecting from “The Green Knight”?
Most of the movie follows Gawain as he completes other quests on his way to death. In this story, Gawain encounters giants, a talking fox, and hallucinogenic mushrooms. These moments are like bumps in the story.
Many people who have seen this film think that it is beautiful. Some people do not like the way this film looks, but I am not one of them. The shadow colors of misty grays and dark greens look like paintings at times.
But I think it’s a painting that you would walk past at a museum after just looking for a quick second. In this movie, the director only shows the magic in little bits. David Sims of The Atlantic calls the movie a “dreamy piece of high fantasy.” It is easy to become enchanted with it, but there are not many moments that feel like delight. When they do come, though, they are just too short and don’t have much strength.
The style of this painting is very different. It took a lot of skill to make it. I felt like I was looking at it for two hours because the scenery is just there to show off the face. A person who is called a “magnet for sympathy” by A. O. Scott of The New York Times is someone who people want to watch and feel like they know them by the time they leave the theater. He’s a good actor. He’s not the problem.
What are the other details related to The Green Knight?
Alison Willmore of Vulture wrote that the film “is about someone who keeps waiting for external forces to turn him into the gallant, heroic figure he believes he should be.” The main point of this film is when these external forces do not happen and his acting isn’t good enough. I was not a fan of the knight’s game. It doesn’t seem like a good thing to do. It is easy to cut down a tree. But it doesn’t feel good when you think about how much money your life is worth.
Gawain on his quest does not seem real. The places he goes, are not important to him. And when he finds magic, it only makes the story more confusing. The giants and the talking fox are added just for symbolism. They do not mean anything and they don’t have any important parts to their story. Perri Nemiroff said that she doesn’t know why they were put in either. The Green Knight does give people an enigmatic feeling. But it comes back strong and so the ending is really good.
