I sooner or later bought around to searching at The Lighthouse the assorted week, or, as my accomplice later joked it might possibly private been called, Stumble on How Just Willem Dafoe is at Performing. It’s a extremely intriguing movie that sticks Dafoe and Robert Pattinson together and lets the 2 of them staunch more or less roam at it, to an increasing selection of wild results.
As intriguing as it all is to ogle, I got here away feeling like the movie didn’t slightly know what it wanted to philosophize. The movie is packed with symbolism and references to fantasy, however the story doesn’t give us a lens thru which to possess any of it. All of it finally ends up seeming like a bunch of concepts thrown on the wall to give us some cool stuff to possess about, with out any steady which plan within the abet of it.
The last movie I noticed sooner than The Lighthouse was as soon as Portrait of a Lady on Fireplace, and that movie has by some capacity helped me make possibly the most sense of it. Each movies are about two folks stranded together on an island who slowly grow more originate with every other over the route of the story. In Lady, it’s two women folk, and the characters slowly indicate themselves to one yet any other and impact a sophisticated, aesthetic relationship within the process. In Lighthouse, it’s two men, they veritably roam nuts and beat every assorted into oblivion. Maybe that’s the point.
