Under the Silver Lake ★★★★

I think this falls slightly short in what it aims for. However, it bares so many similarities to Pynchon’s ‘Crying of Lot 49’ that I couldn’t help but enjoy it. Once that realisation set in for me, things started to become more apparent. 

It’s not the most accessible film, and that is part of the point - but that shouldn’t protect it from criticism. 

Andrew Garfield is absolutely superb in this. Top tier acting. He throws himself at the role and embodies the character. His mannerisms, actions and dialogue all contribute to this unique fidgeting oddball of a guy. 

Those looking for something along the lines of ‘It Follows’ will be initially disappointed, but it’s without doubt worth watching.
