The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★

This is absolutely an experience and features wonderful, larger than life performances from Dafoe and Pattinson.

That said, there's a lot of confusion surrounding any of the events depicted in this movie and that's a double-edged sword. It's tough for a film to question its own reliability without causing a viewer to wonder "then, why even bother?" And if the answer is simply to showcase Dafoe and Pattinson in these roles, then that's a fine answer, but hardly a great one.

Personally, I struggle to find a better answer.
