The Green Knight boasts a unique visual language and does not disappoint those who've come to know A24 for original experiences. Yes, this will be a challenging two hours for many as well as a very spiritual experience for those willing to endure it's dark mystery. Fans of David Lowery's A Ghost Story will be more akin to the tone and pace of The Green Knight, which borrows the world partially (and will divide fantasy fans) of Arthurian lore. This is more avant-garde than your typical Camelot fare and in all the best ways. It takes its time building an atmosphere around the personal experiences of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), a troublesome nephew of King Arthur. The film is spliced into little chapters with title cards (which most people won't even be able to read) and each acts as a stepping stone or roadblock in the life of Gawain. At first glance it doesn't all connect and I'd only expect those fluent in Arthurian lore to find the connections. However, this is what makes this movie great. Even without a concrete plot it managed to be hypnotic and alluring in ways I never expected. My suggestion is to experience this movie without any expectations. Though if you've read this far you're likely to have some now.
