Worth Watching - May 7: Trailer for Noise Starring Tim Robbins
THINKFilm is releasing a new indie movie called Noise starring Tim Robbins. Also starring alongside Robbins are Bridget Moynahan and William Hurt. Get this - the movie is about a guy in New York City who can't stand car alarms so he makes it his mission to attack every car he can. He calls himself "The Rectifier" and leaves his superhero-like calling card in every car that he destroys each night. Yes, it's a radical idea, but it's got an indie touch so it might not be that bad. Well, the trailer makes it seem not that bad, but I'm not sure I'd say it really looks that good either. Take a look for yourself - seem like a fun flick to you, too?
Watch the trailer for Noise:
Danny Gallagher over at Film School Rejects gave the film a B+, saying: "The story comes with a lot of curves that work very well to keep the film interesting… Either way it's a story anyone can relate to whether you think he should champion his cause or not giving it an everyman quality that so few comedies of its kind seem to have." While it doesn't seem like anything to go out of your way to see, it doesn't seem really that bad either.
Noise is both written and directed by Henry Bean, a semi-successful screenwriter and creator of The Believer. The film first premiered at the Rome Film Festival last year and is being distributed here in the US by THINKFilm. Noise is currently set for limited release starting on May 9th.

Every City dwellers DREAM. I can picture Tim Robbins watching Batman Begins in his Upper West Side flat, and thinking: "If I were Batman, what would I rise up against...." You're lookin' at it. Go Tim!

It really looks hilarious. Tim Robbin's character looks hysterical.

I think this looks great. Although, it could be really annoying if we have to listen to car alarms throughout the entire movie. 😛

This, too, will be worth two hours of my life, and perhaps even the $9.00 movie ticket to see it in a theatre.
