A raw movie equivalent of scandinavian death metal. Which makes me wonder if Goldman would like it. Or at least the soundtrack In case it is not clear, do not show this to your children.
I absolutely loved this one too - Mads Mikkelsen was just amazing. NOT a movie for everyone, don't expect viking battles. I know a lot of people would find it boring but if you are looking for something completely different watch this.
If you like Werner Herzog this should interest you - it really brought to mind Aguirre: Wrath Of God
