This film is a psychological horror masterpiece. The filmmaking is so out there and different along with allusions and questions that go unanswered which adds to the uneasiness of the film. There is so much detail in the production design, everything was purposeful even if you aren't sure what the purpose was. Which makes this film demand repeat viewings, similar to films like The Shining, this film will be studied, analyzed, and picked apart in years to come. The possible hallucinations in this film are clearly inspired by tales and legends of old, and I can't wait to discover the meaning and symbolism behind this film. A lot of the film is open-ended to interpretation, because you could view it in a literal sense and get a lot of enjoyment out of it, but there's certainly a metaphorical view that could be interpreted here. The writing and dialogue was absolutely spectacular, they clearly did a lot of research as to what dialect characters like this would've used during the time period in which the film takes place. And apparently they got their hands on actual ledgers from old lighthouse keepers to write the dialogue of this film. And the dialect alone sets this film apart from all others because it's so unique and interesting. The only issue I can foresee with this is that some may have a hard time understanding some of what the characters are saying, so this might be a film that requires subtitles. The cinematography and visuals were all perfect, they filmed this on location in Nova Scoatia, so everything you see on screen is real as far as I could tell. The black and white color scheme and the 1.91:1 aspect ratio bring a real sense of claustrophobia to the environment. The film puts in a lot of effort and detail into the atmosphere of the film, there's so much dread and uneasiness going on that it makes you feel like you're there. This film really does a great job showcasing what isolation can do to someone, and the lengths some go through to amend sins from their past or just simply accepting it. Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe give nothing short of career best performances in this film. I've never seen such dedication to a role before because they clearly had to go through a lot in order to make their performances convincing and the best they could be. Witnessing their slow descent into madness makes this film endlessly fun and rewatchable. It's the kind of film that have so many quotes that will be remembered, because almost every line that came out of their mouths was pure gold. Robert Eggers has solidified himself as a masterful director and I will see anything that has his name attached to the project. I absolutely adored this film, I think it's the best of the year so far and one of the best so far this decade. And the best part is, this film feels like a rated R classic episode of SpongeBob Squarepants. I have a feeling this film will go down as a classic in years to come. Please go see it.

The Best Film of 2019 So FarReviewed bygrantpaulsenVote: 10/10
I expected so much more from the movie, as the director's prior movie, The Witch, was an excellent film. Additionally, the trailer for this movie immediately intrigued. However, upon seeing it, I left the theater initially confused but then after realizing it wasn't worth much energy, I just accepted the reality of my reaction: disappointment. It was underwhelming. The first hour or so was intriguing and certainly set things up in an intriguing manner but what was set up was ultimately neglected in a pursuit for style and atmosphere over substance. The movie is most definitely a play at metaphors, symbolism, hidden meaning, references to seafaring myths, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Greek myths (a seeming melding together of Sisyphus and Prometheus), and so on but the muddled execution made me suspect that there wasn't nearly as much going on as the cinephiles and movie theorists will invent for it.
Essentially, after the first hour this became narratively unclear and focused instead on repetitive fever dream scenarios and bombastic speeches and emotional conflict between the two characters - all of which were well done and well executed but only raised question marks without a clear story or message. Perhaps it is possible to decrypt it but nothing about the themes or the atmosphere or the story was compelling enough to merit the effort of seeking deeper meaning in this movie. The movie was cinematographically fantastic, well acted, well made, and so on. But the script and story failed after the first hour.
I really can't believe how they spent a money and time to made this movie.. no meaning at all there's no story no point just like a nightmare even the nightmare has a meaning .. only two persons fight each other and hate each other for no reason as well is depressing movie i regretted spent two hours for this what i should call it ?
