<i>The Lighthouse</i> Masters Madness

The Lighthouse Masters Madness


Max and Robert Eggers’ film The Lighthouse (2019), although described as a horror movie, is more disturbing than frightful. Set in the nineteenth century, the film features Robert Pattinson as Ephraim Winslow, a former timberman who has taken a four-week job on a small New England island to help maintain its lighthouse. Willem Dafoe plays…

Man Man and GRLwood Bring Energy and Oddity to the Black Cat

They couldn’t even wait to release their ninth studio album, appropriately named NINE, without putting this knee jerk reaction to sentimentality on full…

Critical Voices: III, The Lumineers


Meditative at times and raw at others, the Lumineers’ minimalistically-titled third studio album III is perhaps the band’s most cohesive narrative in record form.

Audiences should expect musical continuity between III and its discographic siblings, but…
