Rex Review

This is one trippy movie of Pattinson and Dafeo going apeshit in a lighthouse. If you like great acting and beautiful black & white cinematography, well you’ve come to the right place.

Director: Robert EggersWriter: Robert Eggers, Max EggersStars: Robert Pattinson, Willem Dafoe, Valeriia KaramanSummary: As the wavering cry of the foghorn fills the air, the taciturn former lumberjack, Ephraim Winslow, and the grizzled lighthouse keeper, Thomas Wake, set foot in a secluded and perpetually grey islet off the coast of late-19th-century New England. For the following four weeks of back-breaking work and unfavourable conditions, the tight-lipped men will have no one else for company except for each other, forced to endure irritating idiosyncrasies, bottled-up resentment, and burgeoning hatred. Then, amid bad omens, a furious and unending squall maroons the pale beacon's keepers in the already inhospitable volcanic rock, paving the way for a prolonged period of feral hunger; excruciating agony; manic isolation, and horrible booze-addled visions. Now, the eerie stranglehold of insanity tightens. Is there an escape from the wall-less prison of the mind? —Nick Riganas
