    Swedish Production, exceptionally i watched this synchronized. The musical ideas and the implementations of it were good and interesting. But the whole movie is kinda off track. Not a bad movie, just different

    This review contains spoilers. A visually pleasing and fairly entertaining movie, but it fails to deliver a coherent story with reasonable character motives. A bit long and fairly confusing due to things being left unexplained, such as why people "performed on" by the musical terrorists were inaudible to the tone deaf cop, or why these terrorists were doing it all in the first place.

    Unique to a fault, Sound of Noise is a daft police procedural, an absurdist comedy, a piece of metaphysical agitprop, a music-performance film with a bit of story attached, and/or none of the above.

    What follows is a character study mixed with outlandish crime procedural. Everyone's quite serious about the joke, without a moment of Adam Sandler-style "look at how cute we are" that would only dilute the film's appeal. Sound of Noise is a dry treat - a solid, self-aware cult pleasure.

    Without pounding home its avant-garde cred, this fresh ode to found sound and the music of silence casts an amused gaze at careerism, classical-music reverence and notions of artistic purity and ends with a pitch-perfect change of tune.
