Loved that movie, its numerous imperfections contribute to its greatness. Dive into the weird and try not to resurface!
I Loved It! (by Jamie_Seaton)
Think of Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice, David Lynch's Mulholland Dr, Brett Ellis's Rules of Attraction and you might get a feel as to what you'll find in this title...This film ceratinly isn't for everyone! Surreal undertones, obscure scenes and some controversial storytelling which'll push it in cult status in years to come. The film also touches onto the classic Noir genre of the 1950's and does it very well. Perfomances from actors are great and engaging and the strange storline really pulled me in. Its definitely a journey well worth the duration if <more>
you're into something totally different to the generic releases being pushed into the mainstream these days!9.5/10 a brilliant film
Ill start by saying that this film is not just a film, its an experience and i am aware that saying that tells you practically nothing so let me explain.i watched the trailer for this film and expected a cool mystery movie but what i got was a fast paced exhilarating investigative thriller which had me and the entire audience laughing out load at the film and from the film.i don't want to say too much about the film because its so weird and so exciting.what i will say that this beautiful, exciting and sick film kept me glued to the screen for the entire run time
What did I just watch? (by mereldegrauwe)
Under the Silver Lake is the third feature film of upcoming director David Robert Mitchell. Mitchell already established his skills in creating atmospheric movies with 2014's It Follows: a clear homage to 80's horror films. And with his new movie it's obvious that he dared to drift even further from the classic hollywood style of filmmaking.Under the Silver Lake is not an easy movie to digest and will probably not be appreciated by the general public, nor does it need to be. It's clear that Mitchell creates movies out of passion as the best directors do , and after the <more>
success of It Follows he became more bold and as a result was able to create a truely bizzare piece of cinema that reminds us of movies like Enemy Denis Villeneuve , Donnie Darko Richard Kelly and the most obvious: Mullholland Drive David Lynch .Sam is a lonely, miserable and in the end quite unlikable guy living in L.A. After a neighbour girl who he became enamoured with dissapears, Sam becomes obsessed with finding out what happened to her. The search for the truth reveals more and more weird secrets along the way. Including the disappearance of furniture, a dog killer and hidden messages in the media. If you're looking for a movie with an easy plot that will give you all the answers in the end, this movie isn't for you. Many of the plot elements don't get resolved or explained, but when looking at the movie as a whole, this is not a problem. In my humble opinion it just adds tot he overal weirdness and atmosphere of paranoia that the movie is meant to give way to. By far the most striking element of this movie is, however, the unique style. The cinematography has some expertly used neo-noir elements, adding to the detective atmosphere of the movie. Furthermore, it's obvious that Mitchell is selective in the shots being used in the movie. Only a minimal amount of shots are used to tell the tale, leading to a very clean-cut look. The movie has some unique camera movements but those are sparsely used as well, contrasting strongly with the otherwise simple camerawork. Because of this, those special camera movements stand out more and really serve their purpose. The use of music and sound elements is also quite striking: in particular the use of mickey mousing, to often compliment the previously mentioned unique camerawork. Overal Under the Silver Lake is a beautiful piece of cinema that might not be what the average film goer is looking for, but cinephiles will probably appreciate for it's distinct uniqueness and surprisingly well mashed up uses of different stylistic choices.
a bizarre, fun film-noire style movie (by philipvanveelen)
I came in with no idea what to expect, and was really pleasently suprised! The movie had a great classic hollywood style score, mixed with a retro-modern visual style and a mysterious dark ambience. The plot was servicable enough, and Andrew Garfield was very charming and funny. There was a lot of nudity and some snippets of gory visuals, but nothing exessive exept for one scene maybe . I'd defenitely recommend it!
Those who end up liking it will REALLY like it. (by TheVictoriousV)
Finally released in my neck of the woods, A24's Under the Silver Lake starts off 2019 with a bang; an effortful and transporting treat for all human senses. Its colors exquisite, its music delightfully old-school, and its story wonderfully bizarre and original, I've a feeling I already have one of my entries on my 2019 list set.It starts with the young and aimless L.A. resident Sam Andrew Garfield , who sees a mysterious woman played by Riley Keough at the apartment complex swimming pool. Although he finds a friend and maybe a lover in the woman, he later finds that she's <more>
disappeared without trace alongside her flatmates. Wanting to get to the bottom of this sudden departure, Sam finds out more than he expected, including the woman's connection with the death of a local millionaire, a recent series of dog killings, a peculiar indie band called Jesus & The Brides of Dracula, a "Homeless King", and other things that seem to eerily correspond with the plot of a zine he's been reading.The side characters are many but they all leave an impression. We meet the adorable but strange Balloon Girl Grace van Patten, niece of Dick , an actress known as The Actress Riki Lindhome , Sam's conspiracy nut friend Patrick Fischler , another friend Jimmi Simpson with his head oft in the clouds, a hipster friend known simply as Man at Bar Topher Grace , and many more. Some are given cameos before they become important to Sam's quest but they remain entertaining throughout.The director is David Robert Mitchell of It Follows and the composer is Disasterpiece, who provided the Carpenter-inspired synths for that very same film I recall not being too hot on his music in that film but I've changed my mind . Like It Follows, this movie has an old-fashioned feel, albeit in its own ways.Characters in the film prefer to hear their music on vinyl, play their games on a Nintendo Entertainment System, and get their porn from Playboy. Someone categorized this film as "hipster noir" and I can sort of see why.This is an especially great film if you're into mysteries, urban legends, and conspiracy theories. It touches on everything from creatures said to lurk around Los Angeles at night, to secret shelters, to messages hidden within our music, to the idea that all of said music - whether it is rebellious or conformist, regardless of generation - was all masterminded by one person to shape our culture. On top of that is the directing and camera work; the clever, often Wes Anderson-like compositions as well as the long takes that involve many actors, extras and locations at once.Under the Silver Lake is mystifying, to be sure, and some may be disappointed at its lack of answers. However, it is an original yet classical and at times mind-blowing film, even to those who aren't exactly conspiracy theorists. Those who end up liking it, as per my estimation, will end up REALLY liking it.
Hollywood as the place in our time and age where it is possible - although at a high price - to become immortal by having your body separated from your soul and ascend into another universe where everything exists in the light and things will forever happen as intended...
Going to be underrated (by brandonmatthewhughes)
Outstanding. The vibe, the acting, the music, everything. I wouldnt of even been mad if it was longer.
Beware the dog killer (by nogodnomasters)
Sam Andrew Garfield lives in Hollywood for no particular reason or purpose. He is obsessed with a local author who writes a conspiracy book, "Under the Silver Lake." He believes in vast conspiracies including a nude owl woman succubus who seduces and kills people at night. The secret map in the cereal box is the key.Sam's mother loves Janet Gaynor and the 1927 version of "Seventh Heaven." Sam meets Sarah who loves "How to Marry a Millionaire." When Sarah disappears, Sam looks for her having to unravel coded messages in the songs by "Jesus and his <more>
Brides." A vampire music band. There is a dog killer and a billionaire has also gone missing. There is more, but too much to mention.This is a clever piece of writing taking things that we know and creating coded messages in them. It reminded me of a number of "B" acid films, "They Live" and Peter Strzok who discovered secret coded messages in Russian spy picture sharing in "Operation Ghost Stories."Plenty of clues. Don't try too hard to understand the film, just enjoy it.Guide: F-word, sex, nudity Wendy Vanden Heuvel, Riki Lindhome, Callie Hernandez or body double Stephanie Moore
