Can't wait to see this. Is it out? Too bad Texas is going through a Covid surge again

I guess I could add my own thoughts

[Spoiler (click to open)]Personally really enjoyed this film and it's storytelling. Seeing early reviews (without reading any spoilers) that it was more cerebral and already knowing it was coming from A24, I went into it with a more open mind. Like, telling myself not to expect it to be one thing and I'm glad. I love Gawain's journey and all the magic and fantastical elements he witnesses along the way. I love that you're left suspending your own disbelief about what he's seeing - which made me also think back to Gawain's mom saying "tell me what you see" before he leaves. And then that END, ahhhhh!

And also selfishly, just really loved gazing at Dev Patel's beautiful face for two hours. Would love to stroke and caress that face like everyone else in the movie did lmao

Noooo, well I hope that, if they do put it to streaming soon which some sources are saying, that you can watch it that way!

[Spoiler (click to open)]This movie was unsatisfying. It just dragged and dragged pretty much from the bandit scene to the final confrontation. Dev was great and it was an aesthetically beautiful film but I didn’t like it. I thought the sequence with the lord and lady in the castle would be more significant (and more homoerotic). I liked the vision at the end though.

I get that and I understand how people were disappointed. A24 advertised a movie that they didn't deliver. They delivered a different one.

Yeah the trailer made it look more epic than what it was.

At first I was like "Even with my tempered expectations I'm a little disappointed" but the more I think about it the more I'm like "I like what he did there. That's clever. That's smart."
