The Lighthouse (Robert Eggers – 2019) A

Two men are operating a lighthouse somewhere off 1800s New England. They are supposed to be there only for 4 weeks or so. Maybe more. In any case this one is about them slowly going insane. Movies like this; two actors, one or two settings are favorites of mine if done well. This is one of those. Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson are amazing here. The black and white photography and Eggers solid direction makes for a moody surreal masterpiece.
