Consequence - Clint Worthington
David Lowery deconstructs the hero's journey with this sumptuous dark fantasy.

RogerEbert.com - Brian Tallerico
It is scary, sexy, and strange in ways that American films are rarely allowed to be, culminating in a sequence that cast the whole film in a new light for this viewer. We're all just sitting in that banquet hall, listening to the story requested by King Arthur, told by a master storyteller.

The Playlist - Carlos Aguilar
Told in sumptuously gritty imagery, this epic feat of bold imagination, unconcerned with mitigating its creative force for the sake of unadventurous audiences, has an unconventional film grammar and irregular structure that peers into the different possible outcomes of the would-be paladin’s trek.

Slashfilm - Hoai-Tran Bui
The enormity of this film intimidates me. And it hypnotizes me, and seduces me, and captures me until it feels as if the green has grown like moss over my entire body. But rather than threatening to choke, The Green Knight injects a new source of oxygen into the sword-and-sorcery genre.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Barry Hertz
The power of Lowery’s work here is to filter his many influences into a singular vision that feels entirely in his sole possession.
