The Lighthouse

Trivia: The movie was filmed in a full-frame aspect ratio and in black and white in order to help put the audience into the film. The aspect ratio was chosen in to make the film feel more confined and closed in. And it, along with the black and white filmstock, also helps the film feel aged and older.


Trivia: Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson barely spoke and essentially never hung out during filming. Although it was not for some method acting reason or anything like that. Filming was very hard due to the extreme conditions, and they simply were too exhausted to chat most of the time, instead choosing to conserve their energy for filming. They eventually got to know each other after filming had wrapped.


Thomas Wake: Why'd ya spill yer beans?

Thomas Wake: How long have we been on this rock? Five weeks? Two Days? Help me to recollect.

Thomas Wake: Tell me, what's a timberman want with being a wicky?
Ephraim Winslow: Just looking to earn a living just like any man. Start anew.
Thomas Wake: On the run.
