The Lighthouse ★★★★★

Monkey pump!! Holy hell this is a masterpiece. Two men on a rock in the ocean slowly go mad. Absolutely phenomenal, visceral, intense, hilarious filmmaking. Every shot is masterful. The score by Mark Korven is astounding. Willem Dafoe & Robert Pattinson are incredible, plumbing the depths of insanity. Perfection. Might just be Pattinson's best performance yet. I am totally totally blown away. The best B&W cinematography since Cold War, if not even better. Every frame is stunning. There's some seriously iconic shots in this that feel like they'll be studied for decades. Just, wow. Easily one of my favorite films of the year.
