The Wrong Type of Noise
30 January 2021 | by GarbageBurnerSee all my reviews

I thought this was going to be a movie about someone making a harsh noise playlist. Not super thrilled with what I got. It's not terrible, but a little Merzbow would go a long way.

I am aware that a mainstream movie that heavily features harsh noise would be basically unwatchable to a large swathe of a standard audience, and it's not really feasible to expect something like that. But like, that could be a pretty cool movie, just some pretentious teen building their ultimate noise playlist, and everyone just not getting it, which only reinforces their feeling of isolation, further feeding back into their desire to seek alternative media.

Anyway, this movie failed to meet my expectations, which today I'm going to say is their problem, not mine.
