Under the Silver Lake

Under the Silver Lake ★★★★

I found this super entertaining and the production aspects of this were sick too - cinematography, soundtrack and production design went crazy. But yeah I really didn’t feel bored at all during this and I do love a good mystery movie with some self indulgent indieness. 

Unfortunately, there is an issue that I found uncomfortable while watching it - which is obviously the way the women are used in it. After reading other reviews and holding my own perspective on it, I see that the objectifying view portrayed through the main character is an interesting part of the story in relation to Hollywood, and the multiple references to old Hollywood are kinda cool. However, it’s still excessive in parts and honestly uncomfortable after a while once you notice it.
