    Ok so. This movie has a very good reputation, so I decided to watch it, and I can't really say I liked it but I didn't dislike it as well, it is so disturbing and emotionally violent, I also can't consider it as a horror movie it's more of a thriller one but it had creepy scenes. Positives: the movie is good and all, the acting is incredibly amazing and it's just so chilly, it gave me so many smiles and there were a lot of hilarious scenes. At first I was having so much fun, seeing 2 dude vibin in an island with a lighthouse, discovering new things and living their lives. Negatives: well it had a lot of creepy vibes, there are things that are scary like shit and kinda disgusting. Yes it says it's a horror movie but idk the creepy stuff felt weird and uncomfortable for me, there were disgusting stuff like we kinda had a pooping vibe? I DONT KNOW THERE WERE INDESCRIBABLE STUFF. Didn't rly like the ending, and sometimes the movie didn't make a lot of sense, maybe cuz it's not rly for my age, tho there's no movie I don't understand, I'm just so confused Overall 5/10

    Not good. Maybe it'd be okay if you're really into art house films but it's a boring movie about 2 guys going crazy on an island. Save the 2 hours.

    This is an intent highly recommend to go see and support the movie 🍿. As it brings back a visual style that hasn't been seen in the mainstream for decades shot in black and white 35mm film 🎞 and in a 1.19 to 1 aspect ratio. The cinematography is striking and proves you don't need overly vibrant color to be beautiful. The performances by the actors Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson are great 👍. I've talked about balancing genres in previous reviews and discussion and how balancing horror and comedy was the most difficult as their poller opposites here I think 🤔 it struck the best balance not perfect 👌 but definitely better than most that it doesn't step on the horror elements. The horror visuals were well done 👍, sparingly used just enough to leave an impact. To go any further I would have to spoil the movie 🎥and you'll know me I won't do that overall I had a great time and highly recommend you check it out and decide for your self and give it a 9.8/10💡🏠.

    Underlying mythical and sexual themes, dark, maddening theatrics with flawless sync of audiovisuals.

    No hay que subestimar el cine de terror. Robert Eggers vuelve a hacer otra obra de arte del cine. Dos hombres son encargados de cuidar un faro, cuando empiezan a ocurrir sucesos peculiares que los hará dudar de su cordura y dudar de quién es la persona con la que van a pasar muchos días aislados. Tal vez la mejor cinematografía del año pasado, realmente cada toma podría ser un cuadro para enmarcar, lleno de simbolismos (radio de 4:3 en blanco y negro). Las actuaciones de Willem Defoe y Robert Pattinson son simplemente perfectas hasta el hecho de cambiar sus acentos y sus físicos. Robert Eggers nos sumerge en una historia perturbadora, con giros de trama y muy misteriosa. Al final de la película solo pensarás en ¿Qué es lo que acabo de ver? (Que mejor momento para ver una película de dos personajes aislados y prácticamente encerrados que en esta cuarentena)

    The Lighthouse is definitely one of the weirdest movies I've ever seen. And I mean it in the best way possible. It's meant to look like it's a movie from the 30s or 40s, and it really pulls it off. The acting is obviously incredible from both leads, and the score makes this really suspensful from the get-go. And it's also surprisingly funny at times, though most jokes don't really land for me. This movie is definitely not for everyone, I can understand if you walk out of this on the first few minutes, and I understand if you watch it 10 times. I enjoyed this movie, i'd say it's worth the experience.

    A waste of time.The only good thing about this film are the performances and the aggressive dialogues between the characters, otherwise the film is no good.

    This movie is so intense and WTF just happened that I can only watch and digest about 20 minutes at a time. I'm on a break now. It's a bit unsettling to say the least. They need to make more like this. Back to the movie.

    If I could give this movie six stars I would just for the tragic amount of bodily fluids. It's like Moby Dick fingered the Human Centipede. I feel like I need a shower

    The artistry that makes this horror film so unique, as the film is shot in black & white, is the approach to allow the audience to create their own interpretation by sharing little about setting, characters, and complex dialogue which makes the film even more memorable. The film shares unpredictable clues that clarify the plot and risks of these characters in isolation in a gripping timeline, yet effortlessly leaves us with questions of what we are seeing as reality or the characters own madness at sea. Highly recommend, this is art.
