The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

I like the nuance of period details but Eggers is predictable not just narratively but aesthetically. At no point does he deviate from doing exactly what I expected him to do nor do I really feel he's trying to express much of anything. I guess this is horror now, never quite as distant from genre trappings as the work might lead us to believe. Eggers just lays the film's skeleton bare under the guise of ambiguity.

Had some laughs though, I admit it's funny.
