The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★★

This is a first reaction, but the score is not set in stone.  I need to watch it again when it comes out on Blu-ray because I couldn’t decipher 50% of the dialogue (which is my main complaint because it takes away from the possibly impact that I didn’t receive).  What I can say is that it is a masterpiece from a filmmaking standpoint.  Flawless direction, editing, cinematography, acting, etc.  I can tell there’s a theme in there somewhere and I can understand some of what they’re trying to say, but I need to hear the whole script in full.  Regardless of all of that, I do think it started VERY slow and I got bored pretty quickly.  Then it picks up and keeps me intrigued.  Hopefully after seeing it again, my opinion changes.
