Becoming entangled in this crazy spider's web of a conspiracy is more interesting than living a boring existence. Sam makes the most out of nothing. Under the Silver Lake is a spellbinding enigma of a film that is equally stimulating as it is mystifying.

Under the Silver Lake alternates between being incredibly compelling and frustratingly confused. And that'll work for some.
July 31, 2019
Visually enthralling, it shamelessly embraces the tinselly dazzle of its setting. Yet it's no empty creation, achieving unlikely moments of poignancy when the absurdity somehow seems to make all the sense in the world.

This is a long, weird movie, startlingly explicit at times, but oddly, and I do mean oddly, affecting.
July 24, 2019
If Under the Silver Lake aimed to leave audiences baffled, it succeeds. It's an uneven tale of dream-like ideas, barely pinned to something one might generously call a plot
July 24, 2019
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.

David Robert Mitchell's Under Silver Lake looks so good while evoking a palpable aura of dread (despite its sunny setting) that it pains to report that the movie makes no damn sense.

The score suggests Vertigo, and like that film, our detective hero is not to be admired, although Garfield's endearing goofiness might fool you into doing so
July 6, 2019
A millennial, movie-mad hall of mirrors that's designed to drive you a little bit crazy, containing elements both witheringly astute and shockingly lame.

Flawed but fascinating follow up to It Follows. Take a trip to an L.A. of cinematic dreams. We're not in Kansas, for sure. Go ask Alice.

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.

The youth anguish of feeling displaced and not destined to fit into the adult world is always treated in a light, respectful and understandable way by (David Robert) Mitchell. [Full Review in Spanish]

"Under the Silver Lake," something of a personal odyssey-cum-mystery, moves in skitters and tics containing a flood of cinematic homage. And while not all of it sticks, it does add spice to the layer cake as it gets thicker and more pungent.
June 20, 2019
With Under the Silver Lake, David Robert Mitchell created a deceptive movie that works as a semantic essay on millennial boredom. A cult classic in the making. [Full review in Spanish]

an intoxicating freaked out parody of the self-involved lunacy of L.A.

"You will need a lot of patience. A lot".

It's like eating from a dish that's well-presented, but you never quite catch the taste. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 17, 2019
The film succumbs victim to its own ambition. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 17, 2019
It is very likely that because of that sharp portrait of a generation with very strong existential contradictions the movie presents through Sam's character... it may become a cult film. [Full Review in Spanish]
June 17, 2019
Under the Silver Lake sends the hidden messages in films to hell in favor of a film that doesn't want for you to care for those hidden messages. [Full Review in Spanish]
