The Lighthouse ★★★★

Farts have never been so serious.
I’ll admit I wasn’t a fan of THE WITCH but Eggers’ two-hander with these two fantastic actors was a surreal, sublime voyage into madness, the kind “they don’t make anymore” (except at a24 or Netflix). And the B&W 4:3 aspect ratio didn’t feel gimmicky at all, only squeezing the tension between these two all the more. Great Cinema.
