Robert Eggers made a name for himself as a singular writer-director with his first feature, 2015’s gothic cult film, The Witch, and his sophomore effort is no less startling and impressive. Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattison play, with unbridled commitment, two wayward seafarers stranded on a deserted New England island. Shot in black and white, this neo-horror trip of a film takes audiences down several unexpected paths as the characters chart their own into the heart of darkness. Literary, crazed and profoundly unique, The Lighthouse is a bewitching delight.
