Collider’s Fantastic Fest Diary Day 3: Sound Of Noise, Legend Of The Fist, Drones and a Special Surprise

26 September 2010 10:15 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Mama said there’d be days like this at a film festival. Days where you go to the movies multiple times but nothing really explodes off the screen. The three movies I caught on Saturday were all entertaining in their own way. Some even had audiences grooving to the sweet beats of the city or the sweet beatdowns of Shanghai. None of them, though, stood out from the crowd the way films on day one and day two did. But, in true Fantastic Fest 2010 fashion, day three had a you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it cherry on top that made it all worth while. Hit the jump to see a video of that moment and also read about Johannes Stärne Nilsson and Ola Simonsson’s Sound of Noise, Wai-keung Lau’s Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen and Amber Benson and Adam Busch’s Drones.

'Sound of Noise' Review (Fantastic Fest 2010)

26 September 2010 9:35 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Reviews, Cinematical, Festivals

"Musical terrorism." When I heard this phrase in conjunction with 'Sound of Noise,' a Swedish film that screened at Fantastic Fest on Saturday, I immediately thought of 'The Blues Brothers.' Those gentlemen wreaked a lot of havoc ... but of course it was for a charitable cause. In 'Sound of Noise,' musicians wreak major havoc all over the city, on purpose, simply because they love music and want people to hear the music in everyday life, as opposed to Muzak and even traditional classical music. The film's successful balance of comedy, music, and police procedural make it easy to understand why it won two Critics Week awards at Cannes this year.

Amadeus Warnebring (Bengt Nilsson) is a police inspector and also the only completely tone-deaf member of an extended musical family, including a younger brother who is a famous conductor. Warnebring knows enough »
