The high production values, excellent acting, and strong writing make this a cut above what is often accorded this sort of release pattern.
Jones and Jibson (the latter of whom also worked on the script) play this material like an intimate theater piece, finding the finer nuances in their characters' simmering animosity.
Crow and his two fine, Welsh-burred leads commit fully to the anguished, nerve-fraying cause, but their efforts can't conceal a certain thinness to the dramatic material...
Based on real-life events, The Lighthouse depicts its dramatic situations in credible and compelling fashion.
Crow shows an ability to quickly right his ship anytime things start to take on too much water.
The film shouldn't be billed as a thriller; as an engaging drama The Lighthouse is one of the best locked-room dramas that Britain has ever produced, and it works as an impressive showcase of the talents behind it.
The psychological drama that plays out is a well-produced piece, clean and effective at times, yet it somehow lacks the inventiveness to transcend and become something far more.
