    Very deep. Both actors were wonderful. You could actually feel the desperation along with the characters. Special effects very good as well.

    When Robert Eggers made his directorial debut in 2015 with The Witch, many critics and viewers lost their heads but it really didn't strike a chord with me. As much as it was very well made, I found it vastly overrated. With The Lighthouse, however, Eggers delivers exactly the kind of film I was expecting. This is a deeply psychological and haunting piece of work that's stunningly crafted with such meticulous attention to detail. Essentially it's a moody chamber-piece that relies heavily on the work of its two principal actors but both Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe are up to the task. It could frustrate some viewers in terms of its ambiguity but i found that a fully fitting approach in our characters' decent into isolated madness.

    Brilliant film, terrific performances from the leads, and the cinematography is astounding. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this movie. Whoever is giving this movie a 1 star review are brainwashed.

    Almost everything about this film is almost impeccably made. Unfortunately, like Eggers' The Witch, it's a dull affair that makes it difficult to get invested in.

    Eerie, disturbing, omninous. A beautiful claustrophobic, 1.19:1 aspect ratio, black and white fucking masterpiece. Haven't had this thrilling feeling while watching a movie since The Shining. Absolutely deserves your attention.
