The Lighthouse, A Film Where Robert Pattinson Gets It On With A Mermaid, May Be The Best Of 2019

If you need something written on a piece of pop culture where somebody fucks a monster, I am your person!

The cast of The Lighthouse, director Robert Eggers’s follow-up to The Witch, is composed of two men: Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson. In the film, which played at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, the pair play lighthouse keepers — one a surly seasoned veteran with many a story to spin, and the other a novice with secrets aplenty and a propensity for silence. For around 98% of the film’s running time, they are the only two people in the movie. But then there is a mermaid. She doesn’t turn up for long, but she certainly leaves an impression.
