Jonathan Glazer directs this delicate science fiction film that divided audiences. Personally I thought it was incredible, a really gritty and interesting film that explores issues around gender and identity, whilst providing a twisted narrative. There’s much debate over which parts of the film were planned and which were genuinely improvised interactions with random members of the public, but this adds to how haunting and mysterious the film is. The cinematography is beautiful, with shots of the natural world juxtaposed with shots of city landscapes, which are both accompanied by the score from Mica Levi which is utterly perfect.
The modern world holds many secrets, but the most astounding secret of all is that witches still live amongst us; vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe for centuries, including Kaulder (Diesel), a valiant warrior who managed to slay the all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments right before her death, the Queen curses Kaulder with her own immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Today Kaulder is the only one of his kind remaining, and has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones. However, unbeknownst to Kaulder, the Queen Witch is resurrected and seeks revenge on her killer causing an epic battle that will determine the survival of the human race.
