It’s been a while since I’ve posted any Trailers From Hell. So leave it to Guillermo del Toro to reignite the fuse.

Brian Trenchard-Smith delivered the goods last time with The Sound of Noise.  Here he pitches a similarly obscure Italian drama/mystery in his perfectly dry British style.  So off to Netflix again, right after this round of True Blood

Anyone who used to hang around the video store has probably already seen this twisted take on the 60s.

 

Gotta say I preferred Dirty Duck though. But hold on, there’s more.  I was a bit nervous even clicking on this one.  Talk about exploitation, now I have to find a copy of this and see for myself…

A Fish Called Wanda ranks at #4 on my Greatest Comedies of All Time List.  There’s a worn out VHS copy around here somewhere.  Yes, you must see this movie.

A very funny, twisted movie…

True to my word, I put Sound of Noise at the top of the queue after watching Brian Trenchard-Smith’s Trailer From Hell. This is such an off the wall, off-beat import, from Sweden.  I suppose it takes a certain personality to appreciate wacky satire, and of course the film didn’t do much at the US box office. Foreign numbers were difficult to hunt down.

But if you want to know what to expect, see this short film version they produced prior to the feature…

Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers

The film plays with the idea of art-terrorists, musicians challenging society’s expectations and the status quo.  Deadly serious, like Red Brigades, these drummer-provocateurs go to absurd lengths in the name of art.  The film also has a magical element affecting the tone deaf cop who’s hot on their trail.

Lagging slightly near the end, the best stunts are right up front as the project gets ramped up.  Their first gig, in a hospital surgery theater, steals the show.  Definitely pump up the volume.

Sound of Noise has that European perspective that confuses and repulses Americans.  Good.  No danger of a bad Hollywood remake anytime soon.

4/5

Instant awesome.  Goes straight to the top of my must-see list.
