    "Severed Ways" is an almost entirely wordless long-form video set to Metal and Goth music. It tries to imagine what it must have been like to be a Norseman exploring North America in 1000 AD. Writer/director Tony Stone (who also plays the lead role) appears to know a lot more about music than filmmaking, screenwriting or acting. Mostly what you get is interminably long scenes depicting such things as the building of a house. There are also many endless sequences depicting our two Norse heroes walking through the wilderness. One thing the film does do is evoke a mood. You really do feel like it's 1000 AD and you're in a forest. The film does get more interesting as it goes, with our Noresemen encountering two Christian monks and then a couple of natives. But as soon as something interesting starts to happen in these storylines, Stone reverts to another panoramic nature sequence. He seems to be allergic to thought. It's too bad, because I get the sense that he's got some interesting ideas somewhere underneath all that hair.

    Earth. Air. Fire. Water. The best portrayal of Vikings in a movie that I have ever seen! The garb was completely accurate. Their attitude, life-style, beliefs, struggle with Christianity and themselves, brutal strength and will of the people... lodging and environment... it was all perfect. Blackmetal was a brilliant accompaniment, bleak and obscure; relaying the peaceful solitude of nature, mysticism, and torment... It was a serene and beautiful work of art. Nature was not only the backdrop; but the core of the work. A word of warning: the film is more like a glimpse of the past, documentary-like but not narrated... it allows you to watch them find and kill their food, defecate, create life, love, and unforgiving death. Not for someone with a weak stomach.
