Loved this movie from the incredible cinematography to the acting to the eerie atmosphere it gives off. Im not generally one to enjoy films with unlinear storylines but i thoroughly enjoyed this.
While doing all this, it also gives the audience a strong insight of what being a lighthouse keeper was like in the turn of the 19th century.
Fantastic portrayal of people turning mad aswell. The situation in terms of the plot continues to spiral way out of control especially for the Pattinsons character, and it shows that with what comes with dilema, also comes madness, and with it the character drags thomas (william defoe) down with him.
Great ending, loved it and really puts you on edge as you quickly start to watch the true madness that tge peotagonist is it. In the space of just a few minutes, you watch the dumbfounded craziness and insanity unfold in front of the audience as he looks into the light (a great shot from the film also).
Overall, i really enjoyed this film although it is rather hard to follow at times. My advice for anyone who has not yet watched the movie, watch it and focus on the characters, enviroment and cinematography, and just enjoy it. - 9/10

I love Robert Edgers The Witch but man this movie was not for me at all. I like weird stuff like i really do but i only love it when it has a meaning behind it and not doing it for the sake of weirdness. The movie is beautiful , acting is on pont, set design is great but there is one thing though........the story. I feel like this movie was trying to be The Shining but in the water which isnt bad but you have to make me feel something and by the end of the movie i felt empty because thr movie wasnt saying much just two guy alone going mad.

All around this is a very unique horror film in so many ways. The cinematography, acting, and chilling score are all very interesting and done wonderfully. There are moments that I personally felt like the film dragged, but I truly think that’s just my attention span today. I could definitely see myself revisiting this on a day when I can give 100% of my attention to truly appreciate the film in its entirety.
If you want and incredible movie to watch, watch this, and amazing and poetic film, leading you to be part of the characters and their surroundings.

Very special movie. The cinematography and acting are astonishing. Yeah, I guess now I’ll finally stop trusting the Academy...

Got snubbed so badly by the academy. Both Pattinson and Dafoe deliver magnificent performances. Definitely not a film for everyone, but the dialogue, the cinematography and the soundtrack makes this a standout film. One of my new favorites.

Feels like a fever dream with images that have stuck in my mind. A mermaid will never be the same. ;-) Hypnotic, mesmerizing and utterly beautiful b/w pictures. Robert Eggers makes no compromises in his film and hooray for that. ‘What do we do with the drinken sailor...’🎼🎬🍺
SO SO GOOD. One of my favs. Very much a relatable movie bc corona.
Glourious black and white insanity.
