The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse ★★★★

Just want to express my sadness at how overlooked this film has been in terms of Academy Awards recognition.

I know some films like Uncut Gems, Midsommar and The Farewell didn’t get a single nomination - which I also think is ridiculous - but I really think The Lighthouse deserves to be competing in at least 6 major categories (score, cinematography, actor, supporting actor, director and picture). Possibly even production design, editing and a couple of the smaller sound awards too. Real shame. 

Also how did 1917 get Best Original Screenplay over The Farewell? That movie was a technical feat but the screenplay wasn’t nearly one of its strongest elements in my opinion.


8.5/10
