White Noise is Noah Baumbach’s latest project that made its debut on August 31, 2022, at 79th Venice International Film Festival. The movie is an absurdist comedy-drama that is about the life of a family that is forced into quarantine due to a cataclysmic train accident. The film is based on the eighth novel by Don DeLillo was released in 1985 and won National Book Award for Fiction in the US.

Noah Baumbach is known for his witty and intellectual comedies and his previous film, Marriage Story was a huge success that grossed around $160,000 in its opening weekend. Unfortunately, his latest project wasn’t much appreciated by fans and received an average rating of 6.5/10.

Despite the film lacking its cinematography, the director was able to grasp the attention of viewers through its surprisingly timely story. The screenplay lacked true elements and character development.

We did enjoy the acting skills of Adam Driver as Prof. Jack Gladney. He played the role beautifully and his acting was much appreciated and applauded. Gladney is a University Professor who lives with his fourth wife and four children. Their lives get interrupted by a cataclysmic train accident that forces everyone into quarantine.

While the acting was eye-catching and held the film, it still missed the mark and overstays its welcome. It opened up with an amazing car chase and ended with a fun-to-watch dance number. But in between, we missed the plot and felt it going off the track and theme.

The movie will be available for streaming on Netflix on December 31, 2022.
