When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a spiraling investigation 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.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Under the Silver Lake hits its stride slightly more often than it stumbles, but it's hard not to admire - or be drawn in by - writer-director David Robert Mitchell's ambition.
Unusual, languid, cryptic, graphic Hollywood-set film noir.
