Under the Silver Lake

Apparently this is a highly divisive movie. Lots of one-star reviews and lots of five-star reviews. I liked it but I didn't think it was great. It sets itself up as the ultimate puzzle movie where clues abound in every frame. Eventually you realize the point of the whole thing is that looking for meaning is futile. I can see why that would annoy viewers who are looking for nicely wrapped up answers. This cop-out thesis aside, there was a lot going on to keep me reasonably entertained. I'm sure a director's commentary, where every little detail is revealed, would be really interesting to watch.
