        32:22 Whoa! That clip of Andrew Garfield in a red bathroom wearing a red shirt came on right when I was picking gunk out of my bong using a red paperclip! Symbolism?

          Thanks for the recommendation! I had to buy a German DVD online because it isn't released in the UK. Good stuff. Reminded me strongly of the work of Daniel Clowes, especially 'Like A Velvet Glove Cast In Iron'

              So he morale is that men are horrible misogynistic monsters and women are victims of the patriarchy? Wow, what a unique point of view never seen in modern times media (sarcasm). Added to the list of movies to avoid.

                  I haven't seen the movie. I will rent and watch it and then come back to this review. I am renting this movie because I trust Jay and Mike so much. I loved The Clovehitch Killer.

                    Here are my thoughts, spoilers ahead:

                    This is not a movie you are just going to sit down and watch casually. You won't want to this watch with a group of friends. It's the kind of movie you get assigned as part of some English assignment. It's not just because it's highly gratuitous; with large amounts of pornographic scenes, gratuitous violence, and even a close up of someone's 2-coiler. It's one of those David Lynch style films. This is loaded with bizarre events, impossible creatures and fantastical elements. What's metaphor, what's a dream, what's real, are all questions you are going to be wondering, and will likely never get answered.

                    It's a weird mix of murder mystery, supernaturalism and film noir. Think Donnie Darko meets Pans Labyrinth meets Chinatown. There are so many simultaneous plot threads and randomly introduced characters it's hard to grab on to anything tangible in this schizophrenic tale. In this 2.5 hour stemwinder the major plot point includes a dog serial-killer, a killer half-lady-half-owl, dead billionaire with 3 dead hookers, secret codes hidden in records, and a huge bunker built underneath Hollywood. Tantalizing stuff, if only any of it reached a satisfying conclusion. I don't need everything explained, but some sort of closure on anything would have really helped this, and if nothing else a shorter run time.

                      It's almost like a thought puzzle. Stretching and bending your imagination to point to a specific message and point something out about our society. Logically would it ever happen. Is it still important yep.

                                          I don't think movies like this "try to be weird". I think it's purposely inaccessible -- it's meant to be watched with friends, and then you discuss it and figure out what it meant and what happened (like "Pi" or "Primer" or "Enemy" or "Mullholland Drive", et cetera). You guys love Eraserhead, right? Just think of it like that.

                                                        Under The Silver Lake is probably the best film I've ever seen. I might have a more favorite film, but UTSL is probably the best. It felt like a Haruki Murakami novel combined with a David Lynch film. I was hooked for the entire duration, the pacing is great, there are creepy moments combined with hilarious scenes, and it had a very satisfying conclusion. And I noticed a heavy Gnostic theme - not sure if that was intentional or just a coincidence. I can't recommend Under The Silver Lake enough.

They don't always knock it out of the park, but they always, always give you something to think about.

Both films are super stylized takedowns of a particular subject, but also kind of trashy exploitations of that same subject. Refn has kind of gotten full of himself, and I hope Mitchell doesn't go down that path, because I mostly dig what he's doing.
