The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★½

This got some of the best reviews in 2019. I have to say, this one was somewhat disappointing. Maybe I was expecting too much. Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson are impressive in their roles. Some of the shots are breath taking. The story was more than a little confusing and includes an ending that is more of a letdown than a grand finale. Apparently, understanding the Greek gods, Prometheus and Proteus, is important to "getting this movie". Maybe I am too lazy of a movie watcher...but I like my stories to let me know what is going on.

Ranked 25th of 78 movies on our UMR Willem Dafoe Movie Ranking Page.
