Indie Rock + Silver Lake = Hip Movie
17 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was looking for a movie about young musicians and stumbled upon this great independent flick via a recommendation by a fellow musician. Being a native to Los Angeles, I recognized a lot of the film locations they used in this movie, and not the obvious ones, (a la: The Capital Building, Mann's Chinese Theater and the odd costumed ones who hang in front...) which made it more personal to me. Especially all of the Silver Lake shots! This flick has a great soundtrack, touching moments and some comical funny business that you don't want to miss (Sam and Sammy?!?! Come on...When do THEY get their spin-off flick?!) I would recommend this sweet and funny movie to a whole span of people, young and old alike. And if you are a native to Southern California or a musician who has "made it" or trying to, it would be worth a viewing...even with your mom.
