'The Green Knight' review: Dev Patel wows in a gorgeous fantasy - New York Post
Jul 29, 2021 1 min, 3 secs

As far as King Arthur films go, “The Green Knight” has a lot more in common with “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” than most newer, high-energy takes, such as Guy Ritchie’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.”.

This telling of the tale sees the young Gawain desperate to become one of King Arthur’s brave soldiers.

In a bold move, although we meet Arthur, Queen Guinevere and Morgan le Fay, their names are never uttered.

During a Christmas feast, a fearsome warrior on horseback called the Green Knight, who looks like the not-so-Jolly Green Giant, stomps in and challenges any man to a little game.

A year later, he journeys to the Green Chapel to accept his fate.

The film seizes Lowery’s best skills as a director: his eye for innocence and nature (“Pete’s Dragon”) and how he uses slowness to deepen a story (“The Old Man and the Gun”)

That said, “The Green Knight” is a bit long for what it is, but at least it’s time spent in the company of the excellent Dev Patel

His vulnerable, determined, nervous Sir Gawain comes on the hooves of his ebullient Dickensian hero in “The Personal History of David Copperfield,” which was also a joy to watch
