The Lighthouse may be challenging, it may even be off-putting, but it's gutsy, accomplished and the kind of movie that sears into your memory.

The atmosphere is ugly, claustrophobic, hermetic, the images murky and relentless. There seems no doubt Eggers is an original and talented filmmaker, but he hasn't made it easy on the audience with this grim, forbidding movie.

As with The Witch, it's the atmosphere that seeps into you like sea brine. You don't watch this film, you are submerged in it. Expect to be spat out, reeling, from the cinema, clutching on to your sanity.

American writer-director Robert Eggers excels at transporting you into the past and putting you under the skin of those you meet there. Persuading you to be glad that you came is another matter.

The lewd, overwrought, Herman Melville-inspired dialogue is alternately mumbled and shouted, the intense, grand guignol performances more interesting as an experiment than conducive to eliciting meaning.

The Lighthouse is a pressure-cooker.
