Director Robert Eggers' follow-up to 2015's The Witch is a starkly gorgeous black-and-white head trip. Thomas Wake (Willem Dafoe) and Ephraim Winslow (Robert Pattinson) are a pair of lighthouse keepers in the late 1800s. Ephraim arrives at the lighthouse where Thomas is standing watch and is assigned to a four week stint doing grunt work under Thomas' attentive glare. The movie shifts in tone from drama to comedy to horror and back again taking unpredictable turns, occasionally dropping hints that not all is real. Pattinson is superb but it's Dafoe who emerges as a giant with a towering, unforgettable performance. He's long been a terrific actor, but in "The Lighthouse" he's a screen titan. He's never burned brighter.—The Detroit News“This truly IS must-see cinema — one of the most visually striking films you’ll ever see, featuring magnificent performances from the two leads.” Chicago Sun Times“Eggers is a true original auteur.” Original CinCast Willem Dafoe, Robert Pattinson, Valeriia Karaman
