The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★½

Robert Eggers really has a way with animals don’t he. Getting some serious "sophomore feature from filmmaker who bought maybe a little too much into his own hype" vibe here but in this case it’s probably for the better, as I can’t imagine anyone else pulling this off with such idiosyncrasy. Kind of wish it leaned even further into comedy but at this point I’ll buy whatever Eggers is selling. Between all the farting and the seagull sparring there really isn’t much room left for boredom anyway.
