Based on Don DeLillo’s 1985 novel of the same name, the new White Noise movie aims to rejuvenate the strong dystopian impulse that the said piece of work became famous for. Highlighting the toxic influence of fear on human life, the abrasive yet hilarious post-modernist take on the day-to-day worries and deep existential crisis of a contemporary American family renders the audience speechless with the poignantly real depiction of one’s sense of dread and helplessness.
Though for over two decades, many filmmakers have tried to adapt the glacial irony of DeLillo’s breakthrough novel but failed because of its allegedly “unfilmable” source material. Noah Baumbach (the writer and director of the 2022 apocalyptic black comedy film) makes sure to catch the decent vibe of the chilling detachment that the Gladneys family feels in the original.
Debuting on August 31st, the oddly heightened world of the ‘White Noise’ and the great response that it received with its arrival, caught the eyes of the larger audience who wanted to get their hands on the satire of the timely story as soon as possible.

What is the Plot of the White Noise Movie?
The 2022 version of White Noise is based on DeLillo’s most notable book of the same name, that won the U.S. National Book Award for Fiction in 1985.
As per 79th Venice International Film Festival Chief Alberto Barbera, opening the event with White Noise was a “great honor” for him as:
“Baumbach has made an original, ambitious, and compelling piece of art which plays with a measure on multiple registers: dramatic, ironic, satirical.”
Further adding that,
“The result is a film that examines our obsessions, doubts, and fears as captured in the 1980s, yet with very clear references to contemporary reality.”
The chief’s aforementioned statement accurately describes what we can call it as the crux of the movie as fear, death, control, and consumerism are the major themes of the film like it was in the original novel.
Overall, Baumbach’s take on DeLillo’s masterpiece revolves around the story of a Professor of Hitler Studies at the College-on-the-Hill called Jack Gladney, his fourth wife, Babette, and their ultramodern kids, who all are trying to survive in this ordinary yet apocalyptic world. However, their life is “torn asunder by “the Airborne Toxic Event,” a cataclysmic train accident that casts chemical waste over his town.”
Thus, the whole movie happens to yoke together horrifying terror as well as wild humor and absurdity as the pivotal tone of the contemporary world of America.
