THE LIGHTHOUSE is a visually stunning and psychologically intense film that tells the story of two lighthouse keepers descending into madness on a remote and mysterious island. Set in the 1890s, the film features a tour-de-force performance from Willem Dafoe as the enigmatic and domineering Thomas Wake, alongside Robert Pattinson as the younger and more reserved Ephraim Winslow.

Shot in black and white, the film creates an eerie and claustrophobic atmosphere that perfectly complements the increasingly surreal and horrifying events unfolding on the island. As the two men struggle to maintain their sanity amidst isolation, paranoia, and nightmarish visions, the film delves into themes of power, guilt, and the dark depths of the human psyche.

Dafoe’s portrayal of Thomas Wake is nothing short of mesmerizing, as he skillfully navigates the complex layers of his character, oscillating between tyrannical authority and fragile vulnerability. With his grizzled appearance, weathered voice, and piercing gaze, Dafoe brings to life a character who is both captivating and terrifying, and his performance has been widely praised by critics and audiences alike.

“That’s all there is, the two men and the lighthouse — plus a matched pair of brilliant performances, torrents of astonishing language, a slow crescendo of fateful sounds and a succession of hypnotic images, in black and white on an almost square screen, that lend a rock-solid sense of reality to a growing struggle for dominance.”

“It’s a stunning showcase for Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe to unleash their wildest extremes, by positioning them at the center of a two-hander about a descent into madness in the middle of nowhere. It’s the best movie about bad roommates ever made.”
