Under the Silver Lake Reviews

Page 1 of 8
July 24, 2019
If Under the Silver Lake aimed to leave audiences baffled, it succeeds. It's an uneven tale of dream-like ideas, barely pinned to something one might generously call a plot
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
July 31, 2019
Under the Silver Lake alternates between being incredibly compelling and frustratingly confused. And that'll work for some.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 16, 2019
Under the Silver Lake wastes a great atmosphere and music with a script that as it progresses it loses its head. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 9, 2018
Strange just for the sake of being strange.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
March 13, 2019
A ramshackle mystery thriller that only occasionally tosses its audience a fragment of its solution
March 2, 2019
There's probably a crowd out there for this occult, twisty-turny, definitively baffling offering; I for one, have no desire to watch it again.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 15, 2019
Under the Silver Lake is ultimately a movie that promises a lot but doesn't deliver enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
March 14, 2019
It's hard to believe that a film that's a mixture of Rear Window, Mulholland Drive and The Wizard of Oz could end up as less than the sum of its parts. But somehow Under the Silver Lake manages it.
August 24, 2018
A film which mistakes mockery and meaningfulness for fetish and frenzy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 17, 2018
Under the Silver Lake never finds a reason for being as weird as it is, making for a confusing and frustrating experience despite its hypnotic visuals and great score.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.2/10
October 1, 2018
The pretense of muddling nonsense with intellectual rigor means that it will forever be impossible to consider Under the Silver Lake as anything other than an exercise in smugness from a creative mind that has only the barest grasp on the theses it posits
January 3, 2019
A tasteless Pynchon smoothie for the "postmodern" audience. [Full review in Spanish]
November 17, 2018
Under the Silver Lake is a giant piece of gold-flaked poo that thinks it's special when it should be flushed away.
March 14, 2019
Perhaps the most surprising part of this Hollywood puzzler is just how conventional it is.
July 23, 2018
Instead, it is a half-baked, superficial story, a prime example of straight white male hubris, trying and failing to masquerade as original and interesting, lacking... the humour or light-heartenedness that would make it entertaining.
July 3, 2018
Mitchell exhibits his disdain for meaning, knowledge and human beings (especially women) over more than two hours of faux postmodern intellectualism.
May 17, 2018
Another cultural bluff to sell as if it were the penultimate discovery of pop recycling. [Full review in Spanish]
January 2, 2019
It is practically impossible to understand anything that happens along an endless footage full of bizarre situations. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
May 24, 2018
The film's brazen sexism is matched by the shameless unoriginality of the conspiracy theories and clues that take up most of its runtime.
June 18, 2019
It's like eating from a dish that's well-presented, but you never quite catch the taste. [Full Review in Spanish]
