Under the Silver Lake is a movie about paranoia, conspiracies, schizophrenia, and hallucinations in a backdrop of hedonistic LA parties. The main character solves (or has delusions of solving) ciphers in his quest to find a missing lover. Or perhaps the missing person is merely a female neighbor who doesn’t know him, and he only fantasized the relationship. In either case, several key events are open to interpretation.

I watched the credits carefully looking to see if the writer/director himself had a more concrete meaning to the film and maybe put a hint at the end. While doing so I noticed a credits scene that was all cipher.

Does any one know what the cipher says? Note the hint in the lower right of “B = A”.

This is a Caesar cipher where b=a. It says:
