Under the Silver Lake ★★

AFI Fest 2018: Film #3
well here we finally are...under the silver lake has played in LA.

i understand that this is suppose to be a neo-noir LA piece, but it is WAY too long for its own good. andrew garfield shines as the quirky and messy lead, but even that can’t save the somewhat-present plot of the film. i feel that this was suppose to be a modern exploration of hidden messages in the media coinciding with one los angeles local’s life, but that modern mystery aspect disappears within the disorganized character study.

side note: certain parts of the film just felt very sexist and unnecessary to me?¿  anyone else feel the same?
