Two brilliant actors going mad in a lighthouse, in 35mm! Look at that 1.19:1 aspect ratio! I've been wondering what this film'll look like for ages, especially this shot Pattinson talks about here:

PATTINSON: That’s the closest I’ve come to punching a director. However much I love Robert [Eggers], there was a point where I did five takes walking across the beach, and after a while I was like, “What the fuck is going on? I feel like you’re just spraying a fire hose in my face.” And he was like, “I am spraying a fire hose in your face.”

Looks like it was worth it.

This looks like a joke arthouse film from a boring comedy skit.  I hope Williamsburg, NY somehow just crumbles into the sea one day.

It looks like a Kevin eldon sketch. The idea of a director hosing down pattison in Rhyl to make a great piece of art is amusing to me.

I already know too much about this film and I haven't even seen the trailer. Going to avoid EVERYTHING so I can go in blind. See you back here when this fucker gets released.

I don't know. I have a lot of time for Dafoe and Pattinson and I like the setting, but The Vuvitch didn't knock my socks off. If this does play near me, it will probably be limited to the overpriced Curzon cinema, so I'll most likely end up seeing it on Netflix or Film Four at some point.
