It's no Mulholland Drive, but the point of Under the Silver Lake rhymes with themes from David Lynch's masterpiece: that lifetimes of watching others has instructed us in how to be watched ourselves.

Ambitious and fascinating. It's the first Mitchell film that truly held me, the first that feels like the work of a potentially major artist...

Really, though, Under the Silver Lake's most easily definable problem is a simple one: it's a little dull.

It's the kind of raggedy-ass thriller that only gets made when a young filmmaker, emboldened by success, moves past virtues of concision, hoping to summon the full, meandering spell of a paranoid dream. Don't hold it against him.

If you were being charitable you could paint the film as a satire on the primitive male psyche and its consequences for women. If that's the case, though, it's awfully well hidden.

If the destination ultimately proves a little less satisfying than the trip, Mitchell and his collaborators fill us with so many moody reveries that we succumb to its warped logic and indelible vividness.

Despite a compelling lead in Andrew Garfield, the tension dissipates rather than mounts as this knotty neo-noir slides into a Lynchian swamp of outre weirdness.

David Robert Mitchell’s follow up to the wonderful It Follows is a beautifully shot but meandering misfire, following Andrew Garfield’s dull protagonist around Los Angeles in a boring-ass attempt at modern noir. An underwhelming, overlong cure for insomnia.
