This one is not an easy go. It is NOT a horror film. It is a psycho-sexual character study. . Dafoe and Pattinson are both amazing. The look of the film is like visual poetry. This is an art film surrounding a spiral of madness.

If you're a big fan of Marvel/Disney/DC movies, don't see this.

While The Lighthouse didn’t hit me as deeply or as sharply as The Witch, the fact that such a strange feature can still be produced with so few concessions to the mainstream, and that it’s coming to theaters, feels like a breath of fresh air — albeit one cut with at least a few Willem Dafoe farts.

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.
