The Lighthouse

Don’t want to succumb to the festival fever too soon by calling a film a masterpiece, but this is a masterpiece. Hot damn. Looks amazing for a start, rare to see a B&W film so fearless in its use of black. 

Has an incredibly haunting foghorn score that is such a perfect throwback and is so so overbearing. Eggers excels with dialogue and character. Listening to this film sounds like poetry even as characters are yelling profanities at each other. It’s also really funny!

Pattinson is next level. His best performance yet. Honestly approaching the levels of Nicholson in The Shining. Wonderfully deranged. 

Good god, can’t wait to see I again.
