The Lighthouse

The Lighthouse

Maria Saakyan’s elegiac, semi-autobiographical, humanist drama The Lighthouse unfolds against the backdrop of the Caucasus wars that plagued Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan during the early 1990s. Told with a dream-like emphasis on vision and sound this is the story of a young woman, Lena (Anna Kapaleva), who returns to her home in a remote, war-ravaged Armenian village to try and persuade her grandparents to leave with her for safety in Moscow. With a striking emphasis on the cinematic image and set to an hypnotic soundtrack by Finnish composer Kimmo Pohjonen, Lena’s return to her homeland combines documentary with the great visual tradition of the cinema of Tarkovsky and Paradjanov to become a poetic journey of discovery. An outstanding directorial debut, and an immensely moving experience.

Faley A (gb) wrote: One real smart and good looking french thriller. Stylish and one visual example of style over substance . The rating might seem poor but don't run seeing that as u might lose a real scary turn-up movie ! It might be a sumptuous feast for movie aficionados. I myself enjoyed it thoroughly . So much twist came up that they were really uncalled for ! This was nothing but pure entertainment, enjoy the ride @!

Gavin P (ru) wrote: Good kids movie, especially when I was mystified by ther Loch Ness monster when I was a kid. Helps that you don't see it until near the end (I think?).

Brian C (ru) wrote: Dawn of the Mummy could have been great....tomb looters find and ransack a mummy's tomb, and at the same time photographer show up to do a model shoot. The mummy is awakened and goes on a rampage.But then it all goes down hill. The mummy raises an army of zombies. The mummy looks like a reject from the Blue Man Group. The American stereotypes are horrendous.The cinematography is, however, quite good. Even the sets are good (despite the bright blue painting on the treasure room ceiling).

Bruce J (ca) wrote: This was probably the worst movie I have ever seen. No, really, it was. Only because it was completely heartbreakingly realistic. Only because Kiki, the protagonist reminds me too much of myself. It doesn??t help that she comes with her own disclaimer, something I should probably adopt. I??m a private menace, she tells the baker who is trying to win her heart wholeheartedly but she won??t love him back because she doesn??t know how to love. She has spent her entire life distancing herself from her emotions. Unable to cry, unable to feel, only able to feel in glimpses, in glances, in slight moments. And those moments are the darkest ones, the ones where she finds herself being fucked from behind by her ??lit professor?? who she jokingly refers to as her ??lit therapist.?? She also feels when she is being penetrated by the guy with the guitar, or when she shatters a mirror and cuts herself with a jagged piece. She feels human when there is pain; when Antoine walks out on her at a pa

Anyhow, Stanwyck is a female reporter looking for an angle or plot to have an average man doing things but ending it all on Christmas Eve because he feels that humanity was getting too hard with the "little man"(Gosh, wonder how he'd take it in THESE times). Anyway, he gets caught up in a media blitz, but comes to find out, it was all a plan from the get go with an even bigger plan about to be hatched behind the scenes. Just to let you know that everything may not be as though it may seem. I really like this movie because it teaches some lessons you really don't see in everyday films but at the same time, there is something in there for everybody.

Panayiota K (au) wrote: Overrated and boring as expected. It's 4 hours for goodness sake. Rhett and Scarlett are awful characters both as a couple and as individuals. No offense but she was too pretty for him and he was abusive too. Everyone in the reviews is bitching about the controversial issues but they were there during that time (some still are). They are not being praised. The scenery was pretty though especially during the sunset scenes.
