Great review guys! It was a decent film. Much of it felt very Hitchock's Vertigo, The Birds and Rear Window. Also the songwriter's home was the same historical building used in The Neon Demon, another film with a similar message.
I felt like the killing of the dogs represents the killing of females or the female spirit in Hollywood. That's why you have scenes where women are barking. Kinda saying how women are "dogged" in Hollywood! But I had a concussion in Iraq so I may be way the fuck off! 🤔
Whatever this movie was trying didn't work for me.
watched it late at night and dozed off several times. thought the confusion was from missing parts of the movie but it wasn't.
Question for everyone:What is the parrot saying?? Oliver?
@iroveashe I checked the cast list. No one is named Oliver. 😕
Hah, I'm not the only one! I heard Oliver from the start and spent the rest of the movie thinking "wait are any of the characters named Oliver?"
Silver Lake isn’t dirty. It’s rich as heck.
you should be eating Saltines with orange juice
Those are some fresh kicks Jay. Nice.
The bluray of under the silver lake is actually out now on Amazon, I found out literally an hour after I bought the DVD. P.S. watched it 2 hours ago and loved it.
Rich white dudes, huh? 🤔Weinstein.. ohhh.. you mean...
Great movie IMO. As they said it has this sort of strange balance that makes it a great movie
I loved the Zelda references.
Silversun Pickups cameo!
i saw it at an art cinema here in mexico lol
The scene where the girl first walks past the pool with the Captain Kirk lighting was basically a straight rip off from Blue Velvet where Laura Dern's character is introduced by coming out of the darkness and into the light of the streetlamp... which was probably an homage to Hitchcock, but whatev.
Its ending saved it for me. It wasn't bad, but I don't feel like watching it again.
Mike saying "sonic the hedgehog" is surreal
I watched this on your recommendation and after it ended I have so many questions unanswered.
Magical realism = all of those Orphic references we didn't understand: i) The right eye of Horus as a portal to Orpheus as the songwriter is ripped directly out of a careful reading of the history of philosophy and the history of Greco/Egyptian culture more generally (remember. it is Bacchus, Orpheus, Pythagoras); ii) the sordid mysteries of Abrasax, Yaldabaoth and the (highly recommended) homemade Ambrosia of Eleusis; and iii) the disappointing realization that a careful reading of the aforementioned articles of history will only lead to a deeper state of confusion if you take it all too seriously.
Scott Pilgrim meets Eyes Wide Shut
I found it interesting seeing Spider-Man comics and figurines in the movie. Maybe alluding to Garfield being used up and spit out by Sony??
I thought the parrot said kill yourself or shoot yourself
Just watched it and loved it. My take on the Dog Killer: At some Point he's talking to the daughter of the murdered mogul and she basically sets dogs equal to unconditional love. I think he is a dog, because he follows all those threads to find the girl he loves without knowing anything about her. Also: Hollywood kills uncoditional love, henceforth he doesn't save her in the end … he settles for something else.
I just bought it for 4.99 on youtube, or you can rent it for 5.99
This movie is a master piece. And also it 's an important movie. As important as Eye Wide Shut.
Under the silver lake could also be a metaphor for the silver screen, and the fact that there is a deep deep murky place behind that silver screen that drowns those who fall behind it. The screen is a silver lake basically I hope other people got that too otherwise ill feel dumb lol
i liked the atmosphere and the owl scenes were fucking terrifying. However i thought that Andrew Garfields Character was extremely unlikeable and the story didn't develop in a way i could make sense of it. I'm very much into Mulholland Drive, Twin Peaks and Lost Highway and i am still struggeling to imagine why the movie has so many plots that lead into nowhere. At least that's my perception. I wished that they portrayed the detective work somehow understandable. I would have preffered if it was Mulholland Drive meets Brick. That would have been cool.
Just got to see it in a theater and absolutely loved it
It's a travesty that this movie didn't get more attention. So many critics gave it painfully average reviews, when it deserved a lot more.
Andrew Garfield is Percival in the search for the Holy Grail. Look into the Jungian analysis of this tale.
Cult Classic in the making.
Just watched this movie. I felt dirty and gained a migraine. Also, it made me hate the Amazing Spider-Man movies more than ever before. What happened to Andrew Garfield?
8:00 right corner
I really enjoyed this movie
this film felt like it's admiring hollywood for it's beautiful artestry that can be achieved, and also spitting on hollywood for their bts practises.either that, or was super fucking high, because I kinda loved it... tho the last stretch was a bit too long..
I'm just like Mike where I actually try to understand the plot of a movie and Jay doesn't seem to care.The only thing you guys seemed to miss was that the dog killer thing came back a bit insofaras the hobo king thought he was the dog killer because of the treats.
I thought the parrot kept saying "Hollywood".
Ambitious? yes, good? eh, not really
Surprised Jay didn't bring up Starry Eyes - definitely get those kind of vibes. Not quite the same, obviously, but it made me think back to it regarding idolatry, how Hollywood treats women, etc.
Under the Silver Lake has moments of truth and hilarity especially if you live or hang out in L.A. Is it perfect, no but I found it very entertaining.
This movie is about a lonely, horny man who feels inadequate but doesn't want to think about it. It's really not that profound.
Anyone notice the Amazing Spider-Man comic? It was a reference to Andrew Garfield, sure, but it gets more eerie. That issue is a post-Mysterio story that involves the first appearance of the clone of Gwen Stacy. That parallels a bit to the movie's story but also creepily to the theme. This movie was in production before the reveal that Mysterio would be Far from Home's villain. Nobody finds that ominous with what the story was about?
I remember watching a trailer for this forever ago, then one day I just saw it was playing at the theaters. What a quiet release for the movie.
I either hate this movie, or love it, or really fucking hate it Essentially it’s just a more “artistic” Freddy Got Fingered. None of the scenes have any weight, the main character is a terrible piece of shit, and in the end none of it none of it had any point. All of you people who are speaking about “oh it’s a BIG criticism of Hollywood” are part of the joke. None of this shit matters and I guess that’s the only true message of this terrible, yet incredibly well made movie.
Pikachu were alright though, just saying
19:40 you’re obviously not familiar with “923” and other similar phenomenon. These things need to be hidden in plain sight in order to be effective.
Jay described the film as Unique at 8:10 and I was looking up reviews for the film and came across one who’s heading was the word: Unique!! I read the word at the same exact time Jay said Unique! ILLUMINATI CONFIRMED!!!
It’s actually kind of genius that A24 dumped this. I think that insured its cult status. The people who discover this movie will be vocal about it. It will find its audience.
the hobo king, starting David fucking Yow
spoiler?The scene with Seven's daughter walking along the highway where he suggested the difference between killing a person and an animal, and saying it was not equitable, suggests he's not the dog killer.And then homeless shit talking I thought was half the reason for the king ready to kill him.The conspiracy mask hoarder may be the dog killer because he wasn't able to get a family or complete the map, to find "success." He was tied to the Owl murderer, maybe making him in that circle, also "beware the dog killer" being older and worn out on the coffee shop later in the movie might suggest it had a resolution.
I still have no idea what is Under the Silver Lake is about, but it was fun to watch this review :)
I watched this movie, and then I watched this review. I wish I did neither.
I watched this movie specifically because RLM did a video about it, I saw it was free on Amazon, then came back and watched this review about it.
I’m pretty sure that all dogs represent women in the movie. That’s why they bark in it. Also the majority(if not all) of the dogs are owned by women too. When Andrew Garfield says his dog died recently, he meant his girlfriend broke up with him a little while back. The dog killers(topher grace says there might be more than one), are old white dudes. This is why in the dream sequence when you see the dog being eaten, it’s actually an old white guy eating it. At the end, when Andrew Garfield is saying how he wants to pet the dog, he wants to be with his old girlfriend. So the dog killers are white dudes who objectify women. That’s why at the end you’re not sure if Andrew Garfield is a dog killer. Does he objectify women enough to add to the problem is the question I think was trying to be asked. I guess it’s up to the viewer.
Don't worry, you guys didn't miss much, Detective Pikachu sucked ass.
I saw it for free on Amazon correct aspect ratio.
Thanks for recommending this movie it was worth watching !
Mike: "Amazon fucked up there coding for the movie format."Me: "Amazon has a secret code hidden in there format coding for the movie about hidden codes!!! COOOOODDDDDDEEEEEEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
This movie reminded me a lot of Inherent Vice.
I loved this movie and actually the song writer scene just pulled me in deeper.
