VVe are rounding out our Robert Eggers coverage vvith this commissioned episode covering The VVitch. Is this puritanical family suffering from shared hallucination, or real curse? Under the evil imagery, is Eggers telling us a dark fairytale or allegory for a repressive environment? Maybe it’s both and either vvay, this movie is burned into our minds. This movie excels at vvorking its vvay into your subconscious and making you feel absolutely uncomfortable. Thank you Joey for commissioning this podcast!
Robert Eggers’ latest project, The Northman, delivers everything you’d expect from a Robert Eggers film; a moody atmosphere, immaculate cinematography, incredible performances, and a smattering of humor, all in a streamlined, easy-to-digest package. Join us for this first-run podcast to hear our spoiler-free review and some trailer talk, then stick around for the spoilers if you’re a Club Bald Move member.
After directing The Witch, one of the most unsettling horror movies of the last decade, Robert Eggers has done it again with The Lighthouse, a film that defies description. Willem Defoe and Robert Pattinson both deliver astounding performances in this largely underrated tale about two lighthouse attendants (“wickies”) who have to make the best of a bad situation. Join us on the podcast, preferably after you’ve seen the movie, for the full discussion.
