The Green Knight

I’ll come right out and say it – I don’t understand what it all meant.  I did some reading after finishing the film and apparently the film is (very) loosely based on some literature from several centuries ago.  No matter.  I also didn’t quite understand the central struggle.  For much of the film I assumed that it was about the quest for honor and if that is even a worthy quest to begin with.  But ultimately I enjoyed the film because it was an interesting journey that was visually stunning.  I can’t say that I enjoyed it as much as the director’s previous works (Ghost Story and Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) but I did enjoy it.
