No, the film is on my to-see list; even if my colleagues who saw it at the premiere were lukewarm. I really liked what Rich Vreeland did for IT FOLLOWS, so I'm curious about what he did for this. Sounds like a completely different soundscape.
apparently this film is mostly a disaster indulgence piece by this director who started believing himself the second coming of Kubrick or something, it will end up straight to Netflix probably
Nonsense. It is a film that would get lost in the onslaught of big budget movies or arthouse darlings at Christmas since it "only" stars the wonderful Andrew Garfield (who isn't a household name nor a big star) and it´s a quirky modern noir meets David Lynch, something movie audiences just don't appreciate anymore.
During its festival premiere it was receiving the kind of mixed response one expects from this kind of film. People who love it, people who don't respond to it.
Even Paul Thomas Anderson could not get "Inherent Vice" (with more starpower AND built-in Oscar pedigree) to either generate good reviews or award attention. So the decision was made that "Under the Silver Lake" would be delayed for the US market.
In Europe, it is already in release.
And, back to the score: this is one really great surprise. One of the best new scores of the year.
