The Lighthouse- Amazon Prime

Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson begin a 4 week rotation as caretakers at a remote lighthouse.
Filmed in black & white with an almost square aspect ratio, the film explores mythology, alcoholism, homoeroticism and madness.

It's a weird flick, but the acting is superb. I didn't even know it was Pattinson until the end credits.

I tried... I really did. ~30 mins in, I had enough. I give it a "No".
