White Noise
Michael Keaton plays Jonathan Rivers, a successful architect and loving husband to his pregnant novelist wife (Chandra West) and father of son Mike (Nicholas Elia), from a previous marriage. After Anna's sudden disappearance and subsequent death, a man named Raymond Price (Ian McNeice) contacts him claiming he's been receiving messages from his late wife. So Jonathan begins a time-consuming and dangerous obsession with EVP. He converts his living room into a studio equipped with numerous television monitors, computers, and high-tech recording devices ready to capture anything he sees or hears. Soon, he has completely distanced himself from real life. Business meetings are cancelled, and weekend visits with his son are ignored so that he can keep his eyes and ears glued to the TV monitors. Jonathan believes the messages he hears in the white noise are alerting him to crimes that have not yet been committed. He soon starts delivering news from the beyond to his neighbors and saving lives. Too bad he isn't able to excite the movie audience. Even from the very opening scenes, director Geoffrey Sax is unable to frighten, enlighten, or entertain us. The problem is that too many scenes take place in front of static television sets with barely audible sounds and foggy images. It's just not plausible for Jonathan to continue to ignore his son and the rest of his life in order to keep watching and listening. If this is an accurate depiction of the science behind EVP, then it's a totally boring and mind-numbing; not worth your time or even Michael Keaton's.
