2015 The Witch
On a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s, two lighthouse keepers have to spend several weeks together waiting for their relief to arrive. Sea legends, isolation and drunkenness send the two protagonists into a spiral of madness and demented behaviour.
Through its black and white format, its square aspect ratio and exceptional actors, The Lighthouse is a unique film, reminiscent of an artefact from the past. After his visionary The Witch, Eggers has directed a hypnotic and mind-blowing tale, proving he is one of the most remarkable and talented filmmakers of his generation.
