Review

Every film starring Michael Keaton is worth seeing. He's perhaps not the man to pull off Hamlet, but he's one of the most engaging and believeable actors of everyday-life in his generation. To say that White Noise is purely about everyday-situations would be a blatant understatement, but Keaton leads this journey through the unknown and into "the other side" with great devotion. The film reveals itself as both surprisingly thematically interesting as well as frightening, but it also lets itself down badly when it is about to untie the knots. However, White Noise is noteworthy for being maybe the only film in which Deborah Unger doesn't come off as a completely untalented actress.
