UW Film Club Podcast #33 – Under the Silver Lake

“Why do we assume all this podcasting is what we are told it is?” 

On this week’s episode, Cynthia and Greg sit down to discuss David Robert Mitchell’s long awaited and highly polarizing film: Under the Silver Lake. With each providing opposing sides, the two discuss the whether there is deeper meaning to the film or if its just a pretentious mess. In discussion they talk about the film’s commentary on popular culture, its underlying allegory for the fantasies of Hollywood, the use of the male gaze, and how the film may ascend to a future cult status. Crack the code, follow the clues, and find out what’s under the silver lake with the 33rd episode of the UW Film Club Podcast!

On this week’s episode: Cynthia Li, and Greg Arietta.
