The Lighthouse ★★★★★

This movie is all rise, baby. Up to the very last minute it slowly and steadily builds up to a mad, horrifying and inevitable crescendo. Gorgeously shot, sharply written and with two of the best performances of the year, maybe THE best for Willem Dafoe. Everything at play here (special shoutout as well to the location scouting team, set designers, and the sound mix) really comes together in perfect alignment for an instant classic within the world of filmmaking. Absolute insanity.

Would make for a great double feature companion flick for The Shining!!
