Under the Silver Lake ★★★★

I think it's too sloppy for Kubrick. Lynch might be closer, but it doesn't have the focus. Hitchcock, sure. I mean, this movie wears it's influences on its sleeve, or on the walls of the apartment if you care to look at the movie posters, or what's playing on TV, or how the shots and frames are set up.

I really love that it is like a kitchen sink homage to noir and counter programming and classics and contemporary and, well...cinema. To every influence of a director of this age.

You can find any number of problems with it, but its scope is impressive and its ambition is fully artistic. I am always interested when someone is swinging for the fences whether it works or not, and for me, this worked pretty well actually. You at least need to give it a try, it's worth it.
