The Lighthouse “I don’t know if I feel anything”

Norberto: The problem, I mean, it’s not a problem, it’s just different than what we’ve been seeing. So fucking different. It’s like watching artwork. I have no idea what that was. I don’t know if I like it. I don’t know if I feel anything.

I don’t know anything. After seeing that movie… That movie is just very confusing. And why was it square for 99% of the time, except for one scene where it was landscape or cinema? Clearly that was intentional. I don’t know if that’s hearkening back to some old  way of film making in some square format? I can only think of Instagram when I was watching that movie. Was this my Instagram movie?

I’m very confused, to be honest. I’m very confused, but it’s good. In the sense that all art is good. I have no idea. 

And then there of all the places to sit we sat next to the one person in the whole empty theater. That was weird.

Mike: I kept thinking of it like a crime scene, I was trying to figure out what was happening… Or what someone would think happened if they stumbled into the last scene and they’re just looking at the results of everything that happened and trying to piece it together. And it didn’t provide a lot of answers. 

The square format was jarring. At first it was  interesting and then you get used to it. But that one scene was bigger, which drew attention back to the square aspect ratio. How long was it like that? Was it like that? Did I imagine it? It was really strange.

Maybe that was all on purpose and intentional. I find it mostly confusing. I am glad I watched it, but I don’t think I liked it.

Kriss: I felt like it was pretty disturbing overall. , I think that there were some really beautiful  scenery shots. ,There was a lot of symbolism, but I didn’t catch everything. 

Human desire and curiosity consumes you.

That was my take away from it. Maybe you wonder about something and then you finally find out what it is and it kind of overtakes you. And there’s also a life cycle theme where the sailors were the souls of the birds, and then they were like eating him in the end.

That’s all.
