If you’re not already farmiliar, The Lighthouse is a movie made by Studio A24, directed by Robert Eggers, staring Robert Pattinson
Eggers is known for his only other film, The Witch. And with this only being his second film, what can you reallu expect from Eggers? A lot actually.
The Lighthouse is a fascinating movie that we guarantee will make you wonder. The imagery is intense, and the whole film will keep you on edge through visuals or beautifully crafted sound design. With anything, there is always room to improve, but this film will have you
For starters, The Lighthouse is rated R. This film depicts two grown men falling into madness, so we can assure you there will be some discomfort. If you love psychology and mental degradation, this is definitely up your alley. There are elements of fantasy throughout the film as we descend further into the minds of these two fellows. The one question we will continually ask ourselves; what is up with this lighthouse?
What’s so Great About it?
Visuals and sound design. This movie is wonderfully crafted. Black and white films might be, on initial inspection, hard to swallow, but the imagery of The Lighthouse that director Robert Eggers brings makes the choice feel second nature. The sound design really assists in taking us into a tense state of mind. A continual fog horn noise of the lighthouse periodically plays, and each small movement or scrape is accounted for. Not to mention – seagulls. Enough said.
