Noise (2007, Australia) Review


Very Good
Seven shot dead on an Australian subway line, leaving one shell-shocked survivor. Another victim found dead in a remote Australian town, suggesting the killer's a local. Into this scenario comes a pedestrian and unambitious beat cop named McGahan (Brendan Cowell), who finds himself stricken with tinnitus while tasked with working on the case. Well, by working on the case we mean sitting in an RV in the suburbs waiting for locals to come by with any evidence they might have. Dirty Harry it ain't.

You'd think that the biggest murder case he's likely to come across in his career would jazz him a little bit, but no such luck. McGahan's a cop, he tells us, because he was too dumb to do anything else, really.

City Loop Review


Good
It's Go, Aussie style.

This time out, six teens are working as scooter-driving pizza deliveryfolk, and all of them seem obsessed in one way or another with sex. There's also a cat involved, as we discover when the kids' interlocking stories are told, one by one.
