Exile, psychosis, mythology, animal spirits, repression - once again Eggers precipitates beast/man/god intercourse on the stage of untamed nature, this time by trapping two dudes in a divine phallus. Dog becomes god and vice-versa. Career performances from the leads, powerful hard-earned footage. Movies about people going crazy just do it for me - I'm taking five points off for now because they didn't use Ween's "Ocean Man" over the end credits.

Eggers' latest masterpiece is just that thanks to how many layers of meaning it keeps aloft like spinning plates: at once an American fable, a descent into fantasy and madness, a reimagining of Prometheus and the Divine punishment required when the profane breaches the sacred. What really stands out is its wet fever dream of musky, sexual rage - this lighthouse is a locked BDSM dungeon with two mustaches who both want to be used but can never agree on a safe word (I bet it's Lobster).

Really enjoyed this in all its craggy, rugged, weird and claustrophobic glory. It seems to pull its words, visuals and themes from all sorts of lore and mythology, and the two central performances are genuinely impressive. It goes off in quite odd directions, but is never impenetrable, and is beautifully and imaginatively made. Highly recommended.

With the death of the cinema experience right around the corner, Eggers' sophomore (and hopefully not last) film feels in many ways like the culmination of an art form having come full circle; A fully-realized, stylistic throwback to an already-bygone era, fueled by one gloriously madcap vision and two equally insane, memorable performances suggestive of a total devotion to their craft. A rare treat in this day and age and a film to definitely seek out in the theatre if there ever was one.

The script is a messy hodgepodge of ideas that never quite congeals the way it should (having your characters go insane is no excuse for sloppy writing), but the film is helped enormously by two powerhouse performances and some absolutely stunning visuals.
