    The Green Knight (Lowery, 2020)...



    Based on Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. From wiki if you don't know the gist of the tale:

    Sir Gawain, a knight of King Arthur's Round Table, accepts a challenge from a mysterious "Green Knight" who dares any knight to strike him with his axe if he will take a return blow in a year and a day. Gawain accepts and beheads him with his blow, at which the Green Knight stands up, picks up his head and reminds Gawain of the appointed time. In his struggles to keep his bargain, Gawain demonstrates chivalry and loyalty until his honour is called into question by a test involving Lady Bertilak, the lady of the Green Knight's castle.

    Looks wonderful. Just the right touch of fantasy and earthiness alike. Ralph Ineson plays the Green Knight.

    I wonder how close this is going to hew to the poem. I haven't seen the Stephen Weeks films, I should do that, but I'm aware that they deviate from the poem in significant ways (i.e. they don't preserve the major plot twists).
    Giving up in 2020. Who cares.

    This doesn’t do anything for me. I’m angry! But I guess this is par for the course for me with Lowery.

    I haven't seen Ghost Story, but I have an idea of what to expect. I may wait for a few reviews to see what we're getting out of this.

    Loved A Ghost Story, enjoyed both Pete's Dragon and Saints. Haven't watched the trailer but all the screenshots are gorgeous. Hyped!
