The Lighthouse (2019)
“I’m waiting for this movie to start making sense”, my guest said.
It took me 3 days to finish The Lighthouse.
No, it is not as long as The Irishman. It is only 2 hours long.
I went ahead to see it because of:
1. The main cast – Robert Pattinson and Willem Defoe.
2. The movie was released in black and white. Yes. The entire movie is in black and white and I just couldn’t resist the urge to see it like that. We don’t get many movies in black and white these days. Unless your TV is faulty.
Was I disappointed? Not really. I had gone in without expectations.
But I have a feeling that most people would abandon the movie within the first 30 minutes because the story is dark – It’s a boring psychological horror film and it was slow. zzzzzzz!
I watched it until the end on the third day. It was like picking up a bad book and wanting to see how it would end. The ending was dark, confusing and of course, disturbing.
Why Go See it?
For the colour and acting. Lord, the actors were great!
Amazing performances! Willem Defoe needs an Oscar. Please.
