Under the Silver Lake

I find movies like this deeply satisfying - it’s ambitious, it’s a mess, it’s a masterpiece, it’s incomplete. I like risks and I admired those that this took, even when they didn’t succeed. The movie itself caters to such a specific subgroup that it’s hard for me to imagine it having much commercial appeal, but that’s all a part of its charm. It’s aggressively dumb, yet striking sensitive in its perspective. I can’t wait to watch it again. Andrew Garfield is so good in this (and finally hot again).
