“It’s about tour-de-force acting and brilliantly percussive period mise-en-scene.” —Indiewire
From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory psychological thriller set on a remote New England island in the 1890s. As two isolated lighthouse keepers, Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson deliver secretive, rum-soaked performances, made all the more creepy by the Melville-inspired dialogue. This gothic maritime ghost story was evocatively shot with black-and-white 35mm film in a real dark and stormy 70-foot lighthouse. 2019, US, DCP, 110 min.
