Under the Silver Lake

"This film could have been written by Raymond Chandler if he was alive now it has been called hipster noir. The characters live in the suburb of LA they are into vinyl and Nintendo and buy Playboy rather than use the internet.

 The premise of this film is that one-night Sam finds this attractive woman swimming in his apartment pool next day she is missing. This could be the plot to any of the Chandler novel or screen play. Next he goes in search of the woman and meets any number of quirky people. As with a Chandler novel we don’t get all the answers. Think of The Big Sleep, The Long Goodbye or Farewell My Lovely.  The amusing take on the Detective Film Noir after 1945 should be see.

 It is a good job of directing from David Robert Mitchell."

From the dazzling imagination that brought you It Follows comes a delirious neo-noir fever dream about one man's search for the truth behind the mysterious crimes, murders, and disappearances in his East L.A. neighborhood.

Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33-year-old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal, and conspiracy in the City of Angels.

“ If a talented filmmaker opening the throttle of his imagination as wide as it can go appeals to you, you should give "Under the Silver Lake" a look.”

Ty Burr - Boston Globe

“The fact that it's finally reached a theater near you is something of a miracle, and a movie with this much packed into it deserves to be seen on the big screen.”

Oscar Goff - Boston Hassle
