Winner of a Best Feature Jury Prize at the 2010 Fantastic Fest, Sound of Noise looks like a work that’s just brimming with absurd brilliance. This Swedish comedy involves avant-garde musicians committing criminal acts as performance art. Here’s a synopsis from IMDb:
The narrative revolves around police officer Amadeus Warnebring, tone-deaf scion of a distinguished musical family, and his attempts to track down a group of six guerilla percussionists whose anarchic public performances are terrorizing the city. The drumming set pieces correspond to an avant-garde score with four hilariously titled movements.
C’mon, that just sounds awesome.
I wasn’t aware of this movie until this morning, and now I’m really looking forward to seeing it. If the trailer is any indication of the overall tone and execution of the film, I’ll probably have an irrationally good time. Sound of Noise will be out in select theaters on March 9th.[Via First Showing]
