Nice idea
16 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The concept, not the production,is far ahead of its time. It argues that we on this planet are surrounded by suffering, even if we can't hear it. Today's dramas lack this sort of existential reckoning. King Lear has been diminished into a story about the homeless and Hamlet into a play about the plight of the mentally ill. The "socially relevant drama" has done more to kill tragedy than Euripides. Everything can be solved with the right social worker or news reporter. Most film festivals judges and dramaturges probably have no idea what I'm talking about. Too bad. For audiences. Anyway, the Sound Machine is worth watching. I saw it years ago and it has resonated in my thoughts ever since. .
