Sound of Noise
Sound of Noise is viewed as a Swedish comedy, though I’m not sure I would view it as a comedy. It’s a very clever movie and it takes a while to get into. It’s about a group of musical anarchists who basically orchestrate a series of musical attacks on the city, and a tone-deaf cop, who hates music, who’s hot on their trail. I mean, it’s one of those movies that is so far out and so whacked, though if you love metronomes you’ll love this movie. I really sort of liked it; it’s just something that’s so different. If you love percussion, you’ll probably love this movie. The publicist asked me how I liked the music, and I said, “well, the beat is terrific.” I’ll give it three and a half stars, partially for originality.
