Dir/scr: David Robert Mitchell. US. 2017. 139mins.
“If Los Angeles is indeed the city of dreams, then Under The Silver Lake is populated with some of the town’s strangest, most hypnotizing and unsettling visions. Writer-director David Robert Mitchell’s supremely confident follow-up to It Follows and The Myth Of The American Sleepover finds the filmmaker again submerging completely into the mood of his material, delivering a tasty neo-noir that wilfully melds tones and sensibilities with a playful seductiveness. Andrew Garfield’s beguilingly withholding performance only sharpens the sense of discovery and mystery at the heart of this quirky, enrapturing tale” says Tim Grierson.
