Did You Know?
- Before filming began, Dafoe and Pattinson rehearsed with Robert Eggers for a week in a hotel in Halifax. While Dafoe loved to rehearse given his extensive theatre background, Pattinson didn't want to show and let out too much beforehand because his character not only has a mysterious past, but is a man of few words. He found the rehearsal process frustrating and uncomfortable, being used to react impulsively infront of the camera and getting self-conscious by over-analysing his character's motives and thinking too much about the scene beforehand. His method being, that if he accomplishes certain things in rehearsal, it will later ruin the spontaneity infront of the camera. Director Robert Eggers welcomed that the two worked so differently and stated that it "created a cool tension and increased the chemistry on screen."
- Thomas Wake: How long have we been on this rock? Five weeks? Two Days? Help me to recollect.
Atom User Reviews
There needn’t be some deeper theme or intent behind a movie like this, but The Lighthouse is an awfully trying experience to end with such a sneering shrug of the shoulders. I couldn’t shake the feeling that The Lighthouse is simply an exercise, an overeager writing class project from a guy who’s just read Sartre, Beckett, and, I dunno, Stephen King.
The Lighthouse provides a marvellous chamber-drama platform for two actors, Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe, who seize the opportunity with gusto.
The movie delivers its share of shudders, along with fabulous arias of anger, wrath and disgust from both actors as the power dynamic bounces back and forth.
