Personal Quote:

[on The Lighthouse (2019)] You can build a sense of momentum in the scene when you do a long oner. It captures a kind of energy if it's done right. And certainly there are things about the cinematic language of this movie that are referencing old cinema. Not necessarily with any specific films in mind, but the handmade feeling, the way the camera operating is sometimes a bit off.

Trivia:

While attending high school he directed a production of Nosferatu, and also designed the sets.

Trademark:

Finishes his films with a close-up of the main character experimenting ecstasy while staring to a light font. See more »
