Under the Silver Lake

Reserving my thoughts on this for now. There’s no way this should be as long as it currently is, and I’m not sure I buy DRM’s interpretations of pop cultural hegemony and the male gaze (or his interpretations of Pynchon, for that matter - pro tip: if you’re going to make a modern reworking of The Crying of Lot 49, maybe giving your grand conspiracy an actual concrete solution might be a bad idea); on the other hand, this hits too many of my “like this movie” weak spots - neo-noir, random unexpected horror elements, split diopters and zollys, multiple R.E.M. needle drops - for me to ignore it. I liked it vastly more than It Follows, at least. Great score too.
