alb0’s review published on Letterboxd:
Not a single scene in this gothic, claustrophobic spectacle is wasted. I could go on a ramble about everything that works for it, but it’s better to just see for yourself, I’ll go with you if you want.
Dafoe and Pattinson in the best roles of their careers, candle light emphasizing every feature of their faces as they descend into madness, it really was incredible. They were really good together, their relationship was a strange mix of craziness, humor, and anger. I really like black and white so this was my thing, and the score, kept in beat by the lighthouse’s eerie foghorn...CHEF’S KISS
PS: I couldn’t stop thinking about the Cartoon Network TV show Flapjack during it, W.D is Mr. Knuckles and R.P is Flapjack lol
