Find out why Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse received high praise from critics but wasn't Oscar material in this movie review.

Set in the late 1800s The Lighthouse tells the tale of two men assigned to tend to a lighthouse off the coast of New England. Thomas Wake is a grizzly old sea dog who’s managed the place for years, Ephrahim Winslow is the young man new to the job with a mysterious past. Regardless of the contract which states the men share the work equally, Wake tends to the lamp and cooks  the meals, Winslow does pretty much everything else. Neither man is friendly nor are they particularly likeable.
