5 Stars! “It is explosively scary and captivatingly beautiful…There is rare excitement in seeing these two actors butt heads and trade difficult, complex period dialogue with such mastery and flair…exhilarating and refreshing…dazzling and dangerous.” (The Guardian)
5 Stars! “it’s lit up by mesmerising performances from Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe…‘The Lighthouse’ leaves you dazed, terrified and elated, and it signals Eggers as one of the most exciting directors working today.” (Time Out)
5 Stars! “ferociously entertaining… Dafoe, who’s astounding, gives his best monologue while literally chewing the scenery, wadding up clods of soil in his mouth. And Pattinson gives a performance of such audacity and muscle that he recalls Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood. That’s no comparison to make lightly, but everything about The Lighthouse lands with a crash. It’s cinema to make your head and soul ring.” (The Telegraph)
