Trivia

The scenes with Sarah (Riley Keough) in the swimming pool are almost exact recreations of scenes from Marilyn Monroe's last film, Something's Got to Give (1962), which was never completed due to her sudden unexpected death. The footage from that film can be found online. See more »

User Reviews

 
Quite different in mysterious style
16 August 2020 | by Floated2See all my reviews

Having heard very little about this film and but remembering its trailers, perhaps accidentally watched this film lesser on not so purpose.

Now this film has the feel of a neo noir type independent and lesser Hollywood atmosphere, and for those reasons it works. The atmosphere is very subtle and mysterious and there are a few things along the way which keeps are interest.

Unlike many films today, Under the silver lake is not so predictable which makes it a joy to watch. The runtime is quite length and at times may seem as if the film is about to end, then suddenly some other discovery occurs.

Enjoyable film simply for the adventure we see the character of Andrew Garfield goes through. Although the ending was somewhat of a letdown.
