This week on End Credits, things are getting unsettling. We’re going to review the new film The Lighthouse, and talk about why it disturbs us deeply. Before that though, we’re going to wrap up out Best of 1999 series, and kick off a new series chronicling the very best of the past decade. So drink up me hearties, yo-ho!
This Wednesday, November 6, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Tim Phillips will discuss:
25 for ’99, Part 5 of 5. It’s been 20 years since what’s been called “the best year in movies” came and went, 12 months of some of the most influential and innovative movies of the last few decades, and for the next couple of weeks, we’ll remember the best of the best. Each of our hosts will reveal their Top 5 favourites from 1999, and this week we’ll conclude with Adam.
The Best of the Decade, Part 1 of 5. So we’re finished with one series of lists, and now we need a whole new one. This week, we’ll start with out with the first of our Top 5 lists for the best of the decade. The second decade of the 21st century wraps up in just a few weeks, and Tim will start us off with his favourite films released between January 1, 2010 and right this minute!
REVIEW: The Lighthouse (2019). Robert Egger’s first film, The Witch, really set a tone that was going to be tough to capture in a sophomore film. But then he did. The Lighthouse features a pair of lighthouse keepers played by Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as they struggle to stave off cabin fever during a month-long hitch on a desolate New England Island. Sounds normal, right? Boy are you in for a surprise…
