Noise, Noise, Everywhere Noise
31 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bruce Weitz plays a man labeled a "murderer." Actually, he never killed another human being. He is visited by a psychologist who is hoping to rehabilitate him. It turns out that we have leaped into a future (not unlike the one we have now) where people can never get a moment's peace from the their devices. While the devices are slightly different than they are now, they monopolize time and thought and take over our existences. Weitz tells a tale of being constantly attacked with noise from every direction, from his boss, his children, his wife. He get so wound up in his disdain for noise that he decides to start destroying the devices. He even shoots his refrigerator and his oven. Weitz, who played Nick Belker on "Hill Street Blues," is the perfect protagonist. He has that dangerous unbalance that works great in this part. This is certainly a prophetic episode and doesn't even seem that far-fetched these days.
