    The Green Knight (2021)

    For me, I see a lot of hints in the story as to what is going on. The green and red speech as an example. I also see the Green Knight as representing nature and the natural world. In this way I do not think the Green Knight looks at death as anything more than a cycle, a season, and so due to...

    I do very much agree with your comment that Gawain's behavior is a comment on the times we live in. I think this may be why the big change from the poem that Lowery makes for the film is Gawain is not at all a noble knight.

    The Green Knight (2021)

    Yes, I also heard Lowery talk about the ending. I do believe his intent is to let the viewer decide what he/she believes happened. So, I don't really think there is a definitive answer because he did not want there to be one. I really like this idea and believe that will leave this a film people...

    Well, in this case the other cut was a finished cut. The film was done and ready to release. Then they delayed it and he decided to look at it again. When he did he felt it was too slow and did not like the pacing. This is why I thought it may be possible that version may exist. It was not an...

    Yes, the A24 editions are nice but you will pay a premium for them. I like this picture enough that I would purchase an A24 special edition if one appears. They do only print so many on each run so they do sell out but then they bring them back in stock. With the Midsommar special edition...

    I did read a rumor that Criterion is going to do this so I guess that is possible. And yes, Uncut Gems was an A24 picture so maybe. I do think Criterion has been working with the Safdie brothers though and wanted to put out a couple of their pictures. Uncut Gems obviously and I think they are...

    This sounds like it will be an A24 special edition which would be exclusive to their site. They do a great job with them so I would be up for that.

    From A24 or just a standard release that would be sold on Amazon?

    The Green Knight (2021)

    So, are there different special cover variations coming? I have just seen the one cover so far but I wondered if A24 is going to do their own special edition of it as they have with Midsommar and a couple of their other films. I saw a rumor that Criterion is going to do this one too and I know...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    Yeah, if you want the more action version of the picture the trailer is the way to go. Or watch Sword of the Valiant. Still, this is a great film but I think you are correct that it is better seen in a cinema where you are swept up in the beauty of the thing. Not sure how people will react to...

    Ha, yes he says he had a phobia. I recall in High School there was a girl that could not take any sort of vomit reference and she would vomit if someone else did or even pretended to by making vomiting sounds. So, of course kids being kids, they would make vomiting sounds every time they saw her...

    I thought it was an excellent discussion with Lowery. I thought it was funny/sad when Josh Olsen asked him how he managed to get The Green Knight funded and Lowery said basically that A24 just wanted to make the picture and had liked working with him on A Ghost Story. It was sad though when...

    I would think you are correct and someone would not watch a video about a film they have not yet seen if they want to see it but you never know.

    The Green Knight (2021)

    Well, that's pretty dead on and is spoiler loaded if you have not seen the film. It is my guess that just a handful of us have seen it. Perhaps people are waiting for a home viewing. If you do watch at home do so in the darkest room possible as this picture has a lot of beautiful low light...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    I watched Sword of the Valiant over the weekend. Obviously drawn from the same source material and it is sort of similar but there are some huge differences. First Gawain is much more heroic and appears on his way to becoming a great knight. There is a lot of sword fighting. Also the Green...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    I read a great piece at one point on who is destroying our world and it came down to it was the super wealthy and their super stupid offspring. Primarily because they have the power, money, and leverage to be far more destructive than a guy working a 9 to 5 job. I sort of feel like Lowery has...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    Yes, I do think there are a lot of layers and things you can find in this tale. The thing I was sort of commenting on was that people can have a laugh at what Gawain is and how he is essentially failing his way through the story but I think some people probably went in with the false expectation...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    I do think the thing you have to ask is, is Lowery attempting to show Gawain as a hero? I would say that the actual point of the story is try to be a better person and interact with the world in better ways. The message is don't be a Gawain.

    The Green Knight (2021)

    Well, everything he says is true, which is why it is so funny, except that Gawain is not a knight. He is just failing miserably as he tries to become one. I think Lowery probably chose Dev Patel to play him because if the character has no redeeming values at least Patel is a likable actor. So...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    Yes, it is certainly not a remake of that picture. In fact the director of Sword of the Valiant had already directed a version of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight...so he was taking his second shot at it with a larger budget. I am planning on watching Sword of the Valiant soon, I have virtually...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    I've continued listening to and reading people review and discuss this picture. Because it is the only picture I have seen in a cinema this summer and it was a damn good one, it has been very easy to focus on this film. I am struck by a couple of things, first that the picture confuses a lot of...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    I do think that Lowery does leave several things so the audience must ponder them and in doing so leaves certain outcomes and representations up to you. I liked that he did this and thought it was smart. The ending was excellent in part for this reason. Two people seeing the movie together could...

    I noticed at that link that A24 is going to stream The Green Knight for one night only on August 18th. Lowery did not want the picture streamed he wanted a theater only release. So, this must be something they agreed to after the first few weeks in the theater. It will be $20.00 to stream it on...

    The Green Knight (2021)

    I do think this would be a great double feature with John Boorman's Excalibur with this playing as the second half of the double. You could play it as the first half as this film is much more meditative than Boorman's film but they both have some awesome atmosphere.

    The Green Knight (2021)

    I do think trailers can be an issue as they are marketing and designed to pull people in to coming to the picture. So, they are never required to show you what you are going to get but rather to show you something that intrigues you. Some show too much, some too little, and some are ridiculous...

    Joel Edgerton is truly excellent in his role bringing a very vivid persona to the screen that acts as quite a contrast to the timid Gawain. Lowery gives the biggest and best speech in the picture to Vikander who delivers it in mesmerizing fashion as she lays out her ideas on red and green...
