Crime thrillers, if done right, are some of the most entertaining movies produced. It’s easy to fail at them, which is why so many of them are simply mediocre.
But we have high hopes for the upcoming flick Under the Silver Lake for two reasons. The first reason should be obvious. It’s being distributed by A24, and they have a pretty successful history. Almost every film they release is great, and that is not an exaggeration.
The second reason? David Robert Mitchell is the director. He was the director behind the incredible film ‘It Follows,’ which earned a great 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes back in 2015.
So this film has a lot of talented people attached, including Andrew Garfield. He stars as Sam, a 33-year-old man searching for the truth behind the mysterious murders, crimes and disappearances in his East L.A. neighborhood.
Riley Keough and Topher Grace also star in the film. It’s scheduled to be released inside a theater near you June 22, 2018.
