Nicolas Winding Refn's Valhalla Rising

(2009) dir Nicolas Winding Refn w/Mads Mikkelsen [93 min; 35mm]
Acclaimed director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, The Neon Demon) brings us this majestic and brutal arthouse Viking epic. A fearsome, mute warrior known as One Eye (Mikkelsen), joins up with a group of 11th century pilgrims off to liberate Jerusalem – but the crew gets disastrously lost and ends up in a ‘new world’ that is utterly unfamiliar and hostile. VALHALLA RISING is a remarkable film that seems at once swathed in myth and mystery yet firmly rooted in the blood and guts of reality.

“Like a John Milius film reduced to its pure, masculine essence and shot through one of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s lens filters.” – Scott Tobias, AV Club

“It’s a chilly, often slow, uncompromisingly harsh film, but Refn’s images will sear your retinas.” – Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune

“A mad meditation on the primeval nature of man, faith and survival, this is Apocalypse Then, and then some.” – Josh Larsen, LarsenOnFilm
