Under the Silver Lake ★★★★½

I’ve always wondered what it would be like if a film wasn’t made to be perfectly synchronised with all the chance opportunities that present themselves. What if all their research leads to nothing? What if that clue has a dead end? Under the Silver Lake has finally brought this concept to life and shows exactly what happens when boredom meets mystery as an unemployed bachelor notices some odd ‘coincidences’. 

The instance of paranoia and overthinking reflects on how we read so much (or so little) into conspiracies and everyday coincidences. Andrew Garfield is terrific, I can’t remember the last time I was so terrified and excited at the big screen.
