The Lighthouse ★★★★★

I'm at a loss for words, in a good way. This is such a confident movie, where all the pieces fit together perfectly. However, the sound design was certainly the standout for me. This film will never win an award for it (due to the Oscar's preferring to give sound awards to the latest Musical/Biopic about a musician regardless of mixing or design quality) but it clearly is the standout of the year for it's incredible sonic prowess.

It is another film that deals with gaslighting, control, and isolation in an incredibly unique way. It takes time develope these two characters and break them down so effectively. It brings you into this small world and then slowly breaks it down until before you know it neither character knows what's real and neither do you. It's perfectly horrible and grotesque and I love it.
