So, what am I missing here? I loved Eggers' first film, The Witch, but this seemed far less interesting by comparison. Is it anything more than cool B&W visuals, a Lovecraftian homage with fart jokes? There were intimations of the uncanny and sinister with Pattinson's discovery of the carved mermaid figurine and Dafoe's possessiveness of the light, but the build-up feels far too long, the climax underwhelming.
