Director David Robert Mitchell is following up his hugely successful indie horror hit It Follows with an intriguing experiment reminiscent of After Hours and Christopher Nolan’s Momento all with a cool Illuminati-style cult worked in?
Under the Silver Lake Being is being billed as a “delirious neo-noir fever dream,” and as you can see by the trailer below that’s probably the best way to describe it.
Movie web-slinger Andrew Garfield swaps out his spidey sense for paranoia as he searches Los Angeles for a mysterious woman who disappears after their poolside meet-cute.
Here is the official synopsis:
“Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33-year-old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal, and conspiracy in the City of Angels.”
From writer-director David Robert Mitchell comes a sprawling, playful and unexpected mystery-comedy detective thriller about the Dream Factory and its denizens—dog killers, aspiring actors, glitter-pop groups, nightlife personalities, It girls, memorabilia hoarders, masked seductresses, homeless gurus, reclusive songwriters, sex workers, wealthy socialites, topless neighbors, and the shadowy billionaires floating above (and underneath) it all.
Mining a noir tradition extending from Kiss Me Deadly and The Long Goodbye to Chinatown and Mulholland Drive, Mitchell uses the topography of Los Angeles as a backdrop for a deeper exploration into the hidden meaning and secret codes buried within the things we love.”
Under the Silver Lake will hit theaters in June.
