Believe it or not, the surreal nightmare that is 2019 is half over. As we head into the latter half of the year, it’s time to look back at the 10 best movies of 2019 so far. This year was off to a slow start, and some of the films on my list aren’t even out yet – I was lucky enough to catch them at the Sundance Film Festival. There are also a handful of currently playing films I’ve heard great things about, but have yet to see – The Last Black Man in San FranciscoLong Day’s Journey into NightWild Rose. I’ll catch up with them before the year is out, but for now, here are the 10 movies that I enjoyed the most this year so far.

under the silver lake release

What the heck happened with Under the Silver Lake, the new film from It Follows director David Robert Mitchell? The neo-noir mystery was snapped up by indie powerhouse A24 right before its world premiere at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival…and then things started to go wrong. A24 slated it for a June 2018 release date, only to push it to December 2018. And then they pushed it again. Now, Under the Silver Lake is being dumped on VOD in the U.S. this month, save for select screenings in NY and LA. Talk about a real mystery.

Under the Silver Lake Review

When you hear neo-noir, what do you think of? The dark underbelly of a city? A detective with a broken moral compass? Illusive women? Venetian blinds? Well, Under the Silver Lake has all of that. And more. Much, much more.

But contrary to the film’s marketing, Under the Silver Lake is not like Mulholland Dr., nor is it like Chinatown. Whether it wants to be is unclear. David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows follow-up is a bold, beguiling tale about erotic obsession and paranoia set in L.A.

After his breakout success with It Follows, it would not have been a surprise if director David Robert Mitchell rode the wave of critical acclaim with another high-concept horror film. Instead, Mitchell has delivered a wacky, surreal neo-noir.

The first Under the Silver Lake trailer is a kooky ride, featuring Andrew Garfield playing against type as an awkward deadbeat who bumbles across Los Angeles looking for his beguiling next-door neighbor (Riley Keough), who has mysteriously vanished.

under the silver lake

I’m in the bag for David Robert Mitchell. His stellar horror film It Follows was one of my ten favorite films of 2015 and I really like his heartfelt (and tragically under-seen) debut, The Myth of the American Sleepover. Despite his first two films existing in completely different genres, his voice is crystal clear in both of them, with each movie exploring the pain of growing up and the fear of facing the world alone. He’s a filmmaker with a unique perspective and an artist to watch.

Now, he’s lined up his next movie: a film noir starring Andrew Garfield.
