Under the Silver Lake

Under the Silver Lake ★★★★½

It took me too long to rewatch this, after seeing it again this movie is instantly one of my top favorites of the decade. It's so cryptic and in-depth and I absolutely love the paranoid vibe. People say nothing happens or that it's too long and honestly there's not a single minute I would want to be taken out. This is a drop dead hilarious experience that needs every second to soak in.

One this that kept getting to me is how much of a character study this is of Sam (Andrew Garfield). Most of my enjoyment of the film comes from just seeing him move around and what he does. Like I don't think he has a single bite of food for the entire movie and after his car gets towed he just walks everywhere he needs to go throughout the rest of the film. For such a bombastic wild story he is the part that gets to me the most. He's incredibly violent and apparently has no human needs other than the need to solve a mystery.

If you don't obsess over this movie you might as well not watch it.
