The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★★½

The (Gas)lighthouse

EDIT: From my year-end write-up:

A Lovecraftian nightmare of tortured masculinity, THE LIGHTHOUSE offers one of the most aesthetically delectable films of the year. Director Robert Eggers masterfully references works ranging from Dante to Coleridge to Melville while hearkening to the European silent films of the 20’s and 30’s, resulting in a surreal work that feels as ageless as mythology itself. Overflowing with narrative invention and bolstered by two remarkable performances from veteran Willem Defoe and bona-fide star Robert Pattinson, THE LIGHTHOUSE presents an expertly crated tale of madness, sexual frustration, and existential horror.
