Under the Silver Lake is certainly unique - a sun-drenched neo noir where urban legend and conspiracy theories collide, following a stoned voyeur-turned amateur sleuth in an off-kilter version of L.A. And while the film can best be summed up by, well, strange, for those looking for a film that falls outside the mainstream, give it a shot.

Andrew Garfield plays our stoner, way behind on rent, spying on neighbors, reading zines based on creepy urban legends and otherwise drifting through life. When he spies a cute, young new neighbor ( Sarah - played by …
