anna’s review published on Letterboxd:
Not only did I love The Lighthouse for all of its insanity and not only did I get to see it 2 months before the release date (you aren’t allowed to complain about film release dates until you live in Europe) but Robert Eggers was there afterwards for a Q&A! He was so funny and insightful and endearing and it only made me love him more!
It was a great and really funny conversation but my favourite thing he said was when some dude asked a kinda pretentious question about developing the unique dialects of the characters that sorta seemed like it was being asked just so the dude could sound intelligent and Robert Eggers just completely shut down the pretentiousness by answering back that Willem’s character basically just talks like Captain Dog in Peppa Pig. We all laughed so hard.
