Dog’s Movie House: “The Green Knight” A Trippy Experience That’s Not For Everyone!”
Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at David Lowry’s “The Green Knight” an update of the classic poem “Sir Gawain And The Green Knight.” As director and writer, Lowry has fleshed out the tale and given a decidedly human take on the formerly virtuous knight while all the while embedding the film with a dreamy, almost hallucinagenic style that is both unsettling and fabulous to behold, both in equal measure. Anchored by a fine performance by Dev Patel as the Gawain, “The Green Knight” is a unique and bold entry into the Arthurian sub-genre of fantasy films. It won’t be to everyone’s taste, however, as I will explain later.
