The general consensus's[Spoiler (click to open)]good. Real good.

SCREEN INTERNATIONAL: It ain't for the plebes. Looks real pretty and the score is gonna fuck you up.

THE GREEN KNIGHT: A beautiful, haunting, enigmatic work that stands as a masterpiece of blood, sex and the magic of Dev Patel’s back. David Lowery sticks his neck out here, fully aware some audiences may prefer it cut clean off. Plus there’s a talking fox!

THE GLOBE AND MAIL: "The production benefits enormously from his choice of leading man.". Swoon.

THE GREEN KNIGHT: holy shit.

i absolutely lost my damn head for David Lowery's medieval epic, a thoroughly modern film that goes so hard it feels like it must've been made 40 years ago. gallop, don't trot.

INDIEWIRE: Ole boy is just waxing poetic about it. I can't even pick something, but if I'm forced too, how about "a stunning 15 minute finale.", that's exciting, right?

‘The Green Knight’ Review: Dev Patel is a Fellowship of One in David Lowery’s Somberly Majestic Medieval Death Trip

VARIETY: A bit of a sleepy, somber ritual - but in a real good way.

Probably my favorite quote besides the very ending of this out of any review - "The wizards of A24, the hipster distribution company, have cut a bedazzling trailer out of “The Green Knight,” to the point that a friend asked me if she should take a bunch of 10-year-olds to it for a birthday party."

It has been 532 days since the first trailer, but finally, at long last, "The Green Knight" is out in theaters this the US. Distribution WW is kind of up in the air.
