"...The thematic element alone makes the film well worth the viewing time....Duvall's savvy thespian nuances are a delight..."

"...THE LIGHTSHIP is a fine, offbeat thriller....Skolimowksi is still a master at creating and sustaining mood..."
A coast guard lightship anchored off the Carolina coast is taken over by three escaped killers. Brandauer portrays the captain of the besieged ship who must protect his men and Duvall superbly plays the creepy homosexual leader of the invading gang.
