Binnenkort komt The Green Knight, David Lowery’s bioscoopbewerking van het Koning Arthur-verhaal Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, in de zalen en de eerste reacties zijn online beland. Een greep!
THE GREEN KNIGHT: David Lowery is starting to become of my favorite working directors with this surreal, Bergman-inspired fantasy epic. A mesmerizing, transporting, magnificently bizarre journey that is one of the rare movies to really appreciate how sexy Dev Patel is— Hoai-Tran Bui (@htranbui) July 19, 2021
I was lucky enough to see David Lowery’s hypnotic ‘The Green Knight’ on a big screen recently & am already planning a return visit when it is released this month. It’s a beautiful Arthurian head trip & frankly a treat to luxuriate in. I highly recommend you venture out to see it. pic.twitter.com/UDbrXPZdZZ— edgarwright (@edgarwright) July 13, 2021
#TheGreenKnight is nothing short of magnificent. With visuals that belong in a museum for all to admire and a career-defining performance by Dev Patel, THE GREEN KNIGHT is a slow-burn tale about mortality and the journey of finding oneself. It's a truly stunning piece of cinema. pic.twitter.com/GJFDBsW0ol— Shannon 🎃🍭 @ Screaming into the Void (@shannon_mcgrew) July 19, 2021
Hello I'm here to FINALLY tell you how completely obsessed I am with #TheGreenKnight I have been thinking of little else since I saw it. It's at once a nostalgic throwback to 80s fantasy, a creepy A24 horror movie, AND a classically challenging David Lowery story. I am OBSESSED. pic.twitter.com/eZH8WzPZYu— Joanna Robinson (@jowrotethis) July 19, 2021
THE GREEN KNIGHT: The 16-month wait to see David Lowery's epic of blood, sex and magic/magik was worth it. Chaos reigns, as one furry and Lars von Trier-y character might (but regrettably does not) say. Dev Patel can cut off my head any time he likes.

#TheGreenKnight is everything I could have hoped for in an adaptation of Arthurian legend. It's simultaneously dreamy and sensual, brutal and bleak. Dev Patel is more than up to carrying Gawain's solo hero's journey in David Lowery's best work yet. Absolutely mesmerizing stuff.— Alisha Grauso (@AlishaGrauso) July 19, 2021
THE GREEN KNIGHT is cinemaaaaaa. It's A LOT but in a good, good way. Very weird and very mesmerizing. And Dev Patel can step on me.— Trey Mangum (@treymangum) July 19, 2021
More to come!
#TheGreenKnight is David Lowry’s haunting, cerebral, journey through Arthurian lore. A methodical deconstruction of legend & nobility. STUNNING visuals & excellent performances from Patel & ESPECIALLY Vikander who has the scene of the movie. Worth the wait! pic.twitter.com/iycUTBkQoN— Griffin Schiller (@griffschiller) July 19, 2021
Friends, #TheGreenKnight is a sumptuous, haunting bit of Arthurian legend, showcasing the creepiness in a lot of those stories. Outstanding costumes, and Daniel Hart's music is terrific. Lowery asks you to intuit a lot, both text and subtext, worth it if you open your mind. pic.twitter.com/z4O9Pkzn4k— Kyle D. Anderson (@KyleDAnderson) July 19, 2021
#TheGreenKnight is every bit as hauntingly beautiful as you're hoping.— Joel Meares (@joelmeares) July 19, 2021
A heady (!) mood piece and morality tale unlike any take on Arthurian legend before it.
Dev Patel continues to astound.
Go in open-minded (and not expecting tons of swordplay) and let it wash over you. pic.twitter.com/TJXHsCbWB2
Loved David Lowery’s #TheGreenKnight. Lowery has brilliantly adapted the timeless Arthurian legend into a unique and original film that I can’t wait to see again. Dev Patel is fantastic and is in practically every frame. Can't wait to talk about it in more detail. pic.twitter.com/0H5bqwHdlM— Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) July 19, 2021
