Under the Silver Lake ★★★★

Under The Silver Lake is an extremely inventive and bold filmmaking masqueraded in a fever dream, and it hits its mark unbelievably hard
Everything in this film feels properly in place due to the writing and the world it’s set in, whether we want to believe it as reality or not
Whether Garfield is Imaginative or brilliant, we willingly follow hoping to get ahead of his search, but instead, we become lost in it all
We get lost in the humor, the beautiful set pieces, the drug fueled parties and dance numbers, and most importantly, in his code breaking
I don’t want to write possible spoilers, but I have a lot to say about this, and I hope it gets released fully one day, because these are the types of films we need coming out. The ones that challenge, the ones that go against the grain, the ones that reveal what’s been in front of us all along. And once it’s exposed, can we just go back to pretending the Songwriter never existed, or is it too late?
