“The Lighthouse”: Film Review & Podcast

Posted: October 30th, 2019 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

The almost numbingly stark “The Lighthouse” answers the question, whether a dark, foreboding film with essentially two characters with issues who tend to a lighthouse on a desolate, otherwise uninhabited island, surrounded by roiling seas, whether such a movie in black & white on a square screen can be compelling?

(Miss Walston, my 9th grade English dominatrix, is spinning in her grave over that run on, undiagrammable sentence.)

Willem Dafoe is the lighthouse keeper in charge.

Robert Pattinson is his assistant.

They really don’t get along.

This is a grisly bit of cinema.

This is not for folks looking for popcorn entertainment.

For more specifics and my more in depth take on “The Lighthouse,” listen to the podcast below.

Unlike my usual shtick, it’s an actual serious review.
