Valhalla Rising

What the hell was this movie? Amazing is what it was. All hail Nicolas Winding Refn. What a badass.

Let's see. I'm not sure how to describe this film. How about a mix of Aguirre: Wrath of God, a Terrence Malick film, and Conan the Barbarian?

I love the violence, the main character One Eye, the almost complete lack of dialogue, the hallucinations, the historical theory. This movie is nuts. I'm dying to know what Chris Larry would think of it.

Directed by Nicholas Winding Refn

i don't know if you'd like it. that's why i'm curious to get your thoughts.

if anything about what i mentioned other than the conan reference sounds interesting, give it a shot.
