Under the Silver Lake ★★½

every 20 minutes or so something stupid would happen like topher grace going on a We Live In A Society rant and i’d think “this kinda sucks?” and then the admittedly sick camerawork would throw in some technical gimmick to trick me into thinking it doesn’t suck that badly and then suddenly there’d be another scene of this la la loser protagonist hooking up with some nameless dream girl 70 miles out of his league and again i’d think “this kinda sucks?”

this cycle repeated for 2 hours and 19 minutes. it’s non-refundable time that i could’ve instead spent rewatching 94.5% of superior neo-noir LA fantasy Mulholland Drive :(
