The actors play it big and bold in a visually striking, black and white horror show.

October 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The visceral, disgusting, and irrefutably maddening theatrics of The Lighthouse are entrancing enough to have viewers happily giving themselves over to a beckoning siren by film's end.

October 25, 2019 | Full Review…

The Lighthouse works because of the strength of the actors' performances, the power of their interaction, and the aura of incipient dread that saturates everything.

October 25, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's rough going, but it's beautifully filmed and framed in black and white, and Dafoe is wild and wildly entertaining in a role that feels written to match his every aspect.

October 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Pattinson is superb but it's Dafoe who emerges as a giant with a towering, unforgettable performance.

What is the opposite of a crowd-pleaser? A crowd-splitter, maybe? Whatever you call it, "The Lighthouse" is one.
