The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★★★

“Come a fortnight and the brace of us’ll be wantin’ to be ever silent as the tomb.”

Just like the in that light, I believe there’s some enchantment in this film. The hypnotic visuals pair flawlessly with the story, and along with the haunting score it creates a very immersive atmosphere. I hate describing films as “experiences” because it just sounds pretentious, but wow, this really is a great viewing experience. It just hits the right spot on all fronts, and just like in The Witch, Robert Eggers’ writing and direction prove just how good he is.
Beautiful, chaotic, agonizing, and truly a mesmerizing film. There will probably be many rewatches in the future now that it’s available on prime.
