The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★★★

I totally thought I already reviewed this movie. This and "Good Time” is what made me see how amazing Robert Pattinson is as an actor sure he was in those Twilight movies but so what great actors are in bad movies all the time. Willem Dafoe gives one of his greatest performances of his career as Thomas Wake and the two leads have spectacular chemistry with each other. I like how this movie is shot and the cinematography perfectly brings me back to the 1890s that and it being black and white and the different aspect ratio which made it really claustrophobic and tense which is exactly what this movie needed. This is another example of a movie being totally snubbed by the academy I mean seriously no best actor nominations at all are you kidding me?! How about best director? Nope not that either at least it did get nominated for best cinematography better than nothing I suppose. This is a movie that should be studied in a film class for being such a goddamn masterpiece go check it out you won’t regret it.
