There are some movies you watch to laugh and some to cry. Then there are those that leave you appalled, feeling kind of gross and thinking, “@#*$^*?!” A24 is an entertainment company that skillfully produces such films and blessed us with two very (very) bizarre masterpieces. One is “The Lobster,” a dystopian story that puts a stressful spin on the already-stressful world of dating; the other is “The Lighthouse,” a movie that shows what going stir-crazy really means. Which is weirder?

You think it’s annoying when Aunt Gertrude asks every time she sees you (Every. Damn. Time.) when you’re finally going to get married? Imagine a society in which single people are not only ostracized, but have to find a partner within 45 days or else get turned into some type of animal? That, friends, is “The Lobster” in a nutshell.

Outside of that nutshell (and overall weirdness aside), “The Lobster” is an extremely thought-provoking tale—the kind that makes you think about things you’d rather not think about. Conspiratorially thinking, it’s probably a film produced by some dating app in an effort to get the number of their registered users up, but that’s pure speculation on our end.

Ask a film student or enthusiast, and they’ll tell you “The Lighthouse” is cinematic genius. Ask some average Joe who just thought it looked interesting, and they’ll break into a sweat, telling you they still really have no idea what they watched. It’s the kind of movie that isn’t “Saw”-level disturbing, but you’ll still feel compelled to take a long, long shower afterwards, nonetheless.

The film follows the increasingly tense relationship between a lighthouse keeper (Willem Dafoe) and his new assistant (Robert Pattinson) as they deal with strange happenings within their extremely isolated lifestyle. Madness ensues, as does a very, very weird scene with a mermaid, making you wonder just what the hell were the screenwriters thinking?
