The Northman: Psychological Fantasy, Middle Ages Queerness & Nicole Kidman’s Best Character

The General Review

So that’s all I have to say about The Northman here. And so, to end this off, I would like to make some alternative recommendations. First, there’s the anime and manga series Vinland Saga; it doesn’t have the literal or psychological fantasy of The Northman, but it’s about Vikings and seeking childhood revenge. And the intrigue is the genuine bond formed between the main character and the man he intends to kill. And my second recommendation is a response to my character analysis of Gudrún, and that is last year’s The Last Duel.
