The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★★★

what a rich movie! not only in terms of form, but also reminds me of moby-dick in the way that it traffics so much in allusion. like the whale in that book, the light here represents an unattainable goal that leads to the pursuer’s undoing. 

side note: willem defoe needs to play Captain Ahab.
