Under the Silver Lake Reviews

Visually enthralling, it shamelessly embraces the tinselly dazzle of its setting. Yet it's no empty creation, achieving unlikely moments of poignancy when the absurdity somehow seems to make all the sense in the world.

This is a long, weird movie, startlingly explicit at times, but oddly, and I do mean oddly, affecting.

The fact that it's finally reached a theater near you is something of a miracle, and a movie with this much packed into it deserves to be seen on the big screen.

The score suggests Vertigo, and like that film, our detective hero is not to be admired, although Garfield's endearing goofiness might fool you into doing so

A millennial, movie-mad hall of mirrors that's designed to drive you a little bit crazy, containing elements both witheringly astute and shockingly lame.

Flawed but fascinating follow up to It Follows. Take a trip to an L.A. of cinematic dreams. We're not in Kansas, for sure. Go ask Alice.

If a talented filmmaker opening the throttle of his imagination as wide as it can go appeals to you, you should give "Under the Silver Lake" a look.

The youth anguish of feeling displaced and not destined to fit into the adult world is always treated in a light, respectful and understandable way by (David Robert) Mitchell. [Full Review in Spanish]

"Under the Silver Lake," something of a personal odyssey-cum-mystery, moves in skitters and tics containing a flood of cinematic homage. And while not all of it sticks, it does add spice to the layer cake as it gets thicker and more pungent.

With Under the Silver Lake, David Robert Mitchell created a deceptive movie that works as a semantic essay on millennial boredom. A cult classic in the making. [Full review in Spanish]

an intoxicating freaked out parody of the self-involved lunacy of L.A.

The film succumbs victim to its own ambition. [Full Review in Spanish]

It is very likely that because of that sharp portrait of a generation with very strong existential contradictions the movie presents through Sam's character... it may become a cult film. [Full Review in Spanish]

Under the Silver Lake sends the hidden messages in films to hell in favor of a film that doesn't want for you to care for those hidden messages. [Full Review in Spanish]

I'm prepared to give Mitchell the benefit of the doubt. His film looks great, and even though it lacks the discipline that might have made it a classic of its kind, it's well worth travelling down these mean cinematic streets.

Mitchell seems to question Hitchcock and his characters, but he also emphasizes the genius of Hitchcock's style, and gives us a film that is saturated and excessive, but also contemporary and ambitious. [Full Review in Spanish]

A mostly meaningless film about meaninglessness...

The characters of Under the Silver Lake exist to oscillate between indifference and obsession.
May 17, 2019
An enigma on top of an enigma, contradicting and solving itself at once. That's quite the feat for any director, and even more of one for any moviegoer to sit through and enjoy.

An expressive oddity made for a small audience -but if you jive with it, it's extremely rewarding.
