A Simplistic Review: The Lighthouse

Between all the drinking, tentacles, seagulls, masterbating, and mermaids, there certainly is a film hiding in here. A BONKERS film, but a film nonetheless.

“The Lighthouse” is a black-and-white-horror-fever-dream-of-an-experience where Roger Eggers lets two actors let loose on each other and creates one of the most surreal times you’ll have in the theater all year for sure.

Whereas Willem Defoe is great, Robert Pattinson is the real story here and he continues to prove he’s more than a shimmering creature of the night, or at least a Fall Day in the Pacific Northwest.

A Simplistic Review: The Nightingale

What happens when you take “The Revenant,” “Last House on the Left,” and anchor it with the BRUTAL truth of what the British were really doing while colonizing other lands in the 1800s, well you get “The Nightingale.”

Jennifer Kent is relentless is depicting the horrors of the times and creates a gothic hellscape Down Under.

Hats off to Baykali Ganambarr and Aisling Franciosi for the performances, which are as good as any you’ll see all year.
