Vice and Virtue in THE GREEN KNIGHT

David Lowery approaches filmmaking as poetry and not prose. His films emphasize highly stylized visual language and emotional provocation over other things general audiences prioritize like action or romance. These things are present in his films when the story calls for it but they are put into their time. In The Green Knight, Lowery demonstrates his mastery of time with intention and adept pacing to create a meditative fantasy epic with every frame a beautiful, living portrait.
