New movie from Robert Eggers (of The VVitch fame) and A24. Stars Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson.

From Robert Eggers, the visionary filmmaker behind modern horror masterpiece The Witch, comes this hypnotic and hallucinatory tale of two lighthouse keepers on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.

It's pronounced "Bezel", not "Bee-zel".

Having just seen it, it's something like Go Mad from the Isolation + Psychological Horror + Through the Eyes of Madness + Ho Yay. The overall aesthetic suggests the combined influence of Ingmar Bergman, David Lynch, and David Cronenberg. Robert Eggers seems to specialize in layering on the frightening atmosphere, instead of going for any obvious jump scares; I don't think there was a single conventional "scare" moment in this film, but it runs your nerves absolutely ragged anyway.

At least ninety percent of this world's problems are caused by full-grown adults acting and thinking like spoiled children.

So I don't know who's more surprising in this particular movie: Defoe or Pattinson?

I say, fitting time for a nap, eh what?

I haven't seen the movie yet, but Willem Dafoe seems to be playing… Willem Dafoe. evil grin

By the way, reviewer Chris Stuckmann rated the film A+, the first one he's given since Lady Bird two years ago. Enough to at least make me curious.

I think it lives up to the hype of every positive review. Patterson is a powerhouse in it and Dafoe is also superb.

…Goddammit I thought I would go see it this week but it only comes out in December here. Oh well, it'll serve as a palate cleanser if Star Wars IX sucks. tongue
